In the Heat of the Night

The Bedfellow’s Club, in its nomadic state, settled momentarily in a bedroom of Unit 2R at 1451 N. Maplewood Ave in the East Humboldt Park neighborhood of Chicago, Illinois. In the Heat of the Night was guest curated by Haynes Riley.

In the Heat of the Night braids together the strands of loose themes in each artist’s practice concerning altered states of consciousness (involving dreams, sleep, hallucination, PTSD, transportability, technology, shame, and psychosis) and the anchor of partnering (à la bedfellows, both literally and figuratively).

“No battle. [He/She] didn’t like battles. [He/She] was the sort of [person] who always goes [their] own way, but doesn’t advertise the fact, doesn’t argue with people who prefer another road.”

Aldous Huxley

“Loving you
Isn’t the right thing to do
How can I ever change things that I feel?
If I could
Baby I’d give you my world
How can I
When you won’t take it from me?
You can go your own way
Go your own way
You can call it another lonely day You can go your own way
Go your own way
Tell me why
Everything turned around Packing up
Shacking up’s all you wanna do
If I could
Baby I’d give you my world Open up
Everything’s waiting for you
You can go your own way
Go your own way
You can call it another lonely day You can go your own way
Go your own way”

Go Your Own Way
Fleetwood Mac

About Bedfellows Club

The Bedfellow’s Club is a project to share art in the intimacy of the bedroom. It challenges the exhibition model, making shows for single individuals, but also extending the viewing period to something more than opening night. The viewer gets to see the work upon waking, in the middle of changing clothes, and the images are the last thing seen before sleep. All of the intimate moments of being are shared with the art.
