Hilton Asmus Announces second location at the Morgan Arts Complex in Bridgeport

Blog

Chicago — July 21, 2021 — Arica Hilton announced today Hilton | Asmus Contemporary will expand into a second gallery space in the Morgan Arts Complex, a newly renovated building dedicated to the arts, design and film in Chicago’s burgeoning arts neighborhood of Bridgeport.

The beautifully designed timber loft space marks an important step as the Gallery looks to its future. Nine years ago, Hilton | Asmus Contemporary opened its 1200 square foot gallery on Wells Street in the River North Art District. Today, the second location in Bridgeport is a natural progression in the expansion of the gallery. Incorporating a “library” wing, the new location will offer art and poetry books on loan to its clientele, as well as for purchase.

Global advocate Arica Hilton states, “For me, art is life. It is and always has been my goal to present exhibitions that will provide the audience a sense of wonder and amazement about our natural world and the world that resides within ourselves. We will continue to advocate for and present exhibitions with a humanistic approach highlighting and inviting a dialectic discourse to investigate eternal ideas. In this sense, I believe it is important to remind ourselves that art is everywhere and in everything we touch. I am excited to present our art library to our collectors, which will be a combination of art history books along with contemporary books by many of the artists we represent.”

Over the years, Hilton | Asmus Contemporary has presented publicly acclaimed exhibitions, from “Divina Natura” by Italian artist Marco Nereo Rotelli illuminating the Field Museum with a sound and light installation inspired by Dante’s Inferno; to a group exhibition of “The History of the Chess Queen – or the Advent of Feminine Power”; to introducing the acclaimed photographer David Yarrow to the Chicago art world; and presenting its first virtual exhibition, “Humanity – A Survey of our Times,” a multimedia show that epitomizes the complexity of human existence.

To launch the new Bridgeport location, world renowned conservation photographers Paul Nicklen and Cristina Mittermeier will debut their first exhibition in Chicago titled “Origins” on August 27, 2021.

Hilton | Asmus plans to redesign the Wells Street location in River North.

Take your time.

I’ve got a Fujifilm X100s. It runs about $1300. It’s easily the best camera I’ve ever owned. I take care of it as best as I can, but I don’t let taking care of it impact the photography. Let me elaborate on that a bit better. You’ll get better at each section of what we talked about slowly. And while you do, you’ll be amazed at how much easier it all is and how the habit forms. The best way to get better at photography is start by taking your camera everywhere. If you leave your house, your camera leaves with you. The only exception is if you’re planning for a weekend bender — then probably leave it at home. Other than that, always have it slung over your shoulder. It would probably help to get an extra battery to carry in your pocket. I’ve got three batteries. One in my camera, one in my pocket, one in the charger.

When it dies, swap them all.

For me, the most important part of improving at photography has been sharing it. Sign up for an Exposure account, or post regularly to Tumblr, or both. Tell people you’re trying to get better at photography. Talk about it. When you talk about it, other people get excited about it. They’ll come on photo walks with you. They’ll pose for portraits. They’ll buy your prints, zines, whatever.
