The Quarterly Site #11: Line-of-Site exhibition hosted by Western Exhibitions uses the term men as an inceptive concept. For this installment of the Quarterly Site Series, Twelve Galleries Project invites three women to curate an exhibition. Rather than reversing the dynamic of the male gaze upon women or the audience upon artwork, the curators complicate and expand these expected lines-of-sight to encompass collaborative relationships between artists. Whereas a “line-of-sight” is the imaginary line between an observer’s eye and a distant point, a “line-of-site” is the trajectory from an artillery piece to its target, denoting a physical rather than visual connection. Thusly, Quarterly Site #11: Line-of-Site pairs artist duos Sarah Belknap & Joseph Belknap and Christalena Hughmanick & Sarah Jones. Each collaborative uses physical objects and performances to publicly display and mediate personal relationships.

Twelve Galleries Project began as a roving exhibition series featuring the work of emerging artists over the course of one year. With each new month, a new location was selected and a new gallery was formed, producing 12 site-specific exhibitions from JANUARY all the way through to DECEMBER gallery.
For its second transitory venture, Twelve Galleries Project presents the Quarterly Site Series. The Quarterly Site Series focuses its attention to the efforts of curators and current Chicago galleries. Every quarter over a three year period, within an existing Chicago gallery, three curators will collectively organize a themed exhibition. Specific to the Quarterly Site Series is collaboration. With the exception of a predetermined theme that is conducive to varied interpretation, there are no rules. Because there are no rules, each group of curators has the possibility to develop a unique model of curatorial practice.

Quarterly Site #11: Line-of-Site is the second to last exhibition of the Quarterly Site Series.
