Czr Prz Throws "Darts on a Map" @ Line Dot, Chicago
“It’s like I threw random darts at a map ... If you plot each point, Chicago is the center, so it’s fitting to have my city host the show.” Artist, gallerist, designer and curator Czr Prz is the energetic host and creator of Darts on a Map: A Collection of People, Places and Personalities, which shows at Chicago’s Line Dot Gallery Saturday, September 21, through October 19, 2019. While making his mark on hot spots the world over, Czr Prz has made a point to hit the bull’s eye and ricochet that talent back to his home city for an international group show of artists, who include Michael Reeder, Pixel Pancho, Kevin Ledo, Joe Iurato, 2 Alas, Denial, Marina Zumi, Rachel Strum, Ava Grey Designs, Marka27, Sarah Best, Ian Kuali’i, Nicole Salgar, and Ozmo.
Among the array of media and styles from artists all over the world, what unifies is universal fascination with the human face in all its moods, colors and stages of life. Their force is palpable, and it conveys the connections Czr Pzr has made with each artist, as described by Line Dot co-owner Oliver Hild, “These are people he has shown with, collaborated with, painted with and drank with. In some cases, they are contemporaries but they all tie into Czr personally ...” You might not get a chance to share a glass, but stop by and meet some new faces.
