a solo show by ACRE artist
Da’NIRO ELLE BROWN
SAT 18 APR | 7PM
DEFIBRILLATOR GALLERY is proud to present a solo show titled, NEEDS, by ACRE artist Da’NIRO ELLE BROWN for one night only: Saturday 18 APRIL 2015 at 7PM. ACRE is a residency program that endeavors to provide opportunities for its alumni – in this case, Da’NIRO ELLE BROWN.
Da’NIRO ELLE BROWN (1993) is a multidisciplinary visual and performance artist whose practice is based on an exploration of the human form. She has a distinct aesthetic that bridges a multitude of media including sculpture, performance, video, and photography. Brown has a keen interest in process, evolution of sexuality, and intimacy to form. These interests are informed by society, speculation, and biological development. NEEDS is a new work created specifically for this exhibition at Defibrillator.

ACRE (Artists’ Cooperative Residency and Exhibitions) is a Chicago based volunteer-run nonprofit devoted to supporting emerging artists. ACRE was designed to help artists develop, present, and discuss their practices by providing forums for idea exchange, interdisciplinary collaboration, and experimental projects. ACRE’s residency takes place every summer in rural Southwest Wisconsin with three 12day sessions hosting 2530 residents each time. Over the subsequent year ACRE endeavors to provide opportunities and exposure to its alumni. Each resident can become part of an online flat file and offered an exhibition opportunity at ACRE Projects in Pilsen or one of a number of other partner galleries.
