Return to Home



My first solo show! I'll have new images from a project I started this spring. More info below.

WHERE: Optima Horizons, 800 Elgin, Evanston, IL

CTA: Davis

WHEN: August 26th - September 30th


RETURN TO HOME press release:

Evanston Art Center On Tour, a program which brings exhibitions of faculty and student work to off-site locations throughout the community, presents Return to Home, new photographic work by EAC faculty member Andrew Breen at the 800 Elgin building in downtown Evanston. Return to Home is a series of reconfigured and reimagined domestic spaces from classic television sitcoms and dramas. The exhibition opens Tuesday, August 26th, and continues through September 31st.


Breen uses screenshots salvaged from shows as diverse as "The Honeymooners," "Charles in Charge," and "Dynasty" to create photomontages that look beyond the intended rigid, time-based TV narrative; Return to Home places the constructed and sublimated spaces of production sets in focus, renewing the potential of stagnant imagined places.


Andrew Breen received a BFA in photography with a minor in Art History from Columbia College Chicago. He was awarded the Weisman Memorial Scholarship twice and was a finalist in the Union League Civic and Arts Foundation’s Visual Arts Competition. His work has been shown at the various galleries including Hokin Gallery, Ben Shahn Gallery, and Pierro Gallery. He lives and works in Chicago, IL and currently teaches at the Evanston Art Center.
