About My Business:

 

Gallery Provocateur, located at 1621 N Kedzie in a renovated Art Deco ballroom, is the antithesis to traditional galleries and is quite proud of such distinction. With a primary focus on figurative artwork, Gallery Provocateur reshapes the typical gallery experience by creating a venue that seamlessly meets the needs of cutting edge, contemporary works while referencing dark, romantic allusions to history. The ambiance is somewhere between a classy opium den and a 19th century salon in Logan Square." Marginalia Gallery Provocateur is a not for profit gallery dedicated to promoting the arts and giving back to the art community with a low commission rate and nominal fees. Formerly a storefront gallery in the Congress Theatre building until late 2012 the gallery has is now located in a beautiful renovated Art Deco 1920's ballroom complete with its original tin ceiling and crown moldings. The gallery's mission is to offer opportunities for artists and art enthusiasts, bring art to the masses, promote self-expression and break the negative stereotypes that are so often associated with the arts and figurative work. Gallery Provocateur exhibits a genre of work influenced by illustration, fantasy, subculture, comic books, pop culture imagery and the feminine mystique. We represent a mix of emerging and career artists with an emphasis on cultivating new talent and creating an environment where artists can further develop their work. We are a not for profit gallery due to our dissatisfaction with conventional galleries charging high percentages and fees while offering the same in an often uninviting, stark environment. The unconventional approach has helped shape our gallery's commitment to offering our space as one that encourages exploration and offering art forms which are massively underappreciated. Gallery Provocateur remains focused on maintaining its mission of community, and commitment to providing our artists with a nurturing arena for experimentation and growth.
