RUSCHMAN is a contemporary art gallery located in Chicago, IL. After several years operating as a roving curatorial endeavor, the gallery program opened its first brick-and-mortar location in Chicago's Irving Park neighborhood in 2020. The gallery hosts approximately 8 exhibitions per year in the main location, and participates in numerous art fairs annually worldwide (health and safety of the overall population withstanding). The gallery seeks to present thoughtful solo and group exhibitions, heavily promoting the practices of under-represented artists, including but not limited to BIPOC, womxn, and those living with disability.
In September 2021, RUSCHMAN opened a second location in Chicago. Called RUSCHWOMAN, this second exhibition space is run in collaboration with Matt Morris, and stems from the duo's earlier roots operating artist-run DIY exhibition venues. RUSCHWOMAN is compelled by an interest in inviting feminist-oriented dissent into the marketplace in which the main gallery is positioned. Her exhibition program is both curatorially and commercially minded; further, the space is oriented toward additional purposes like care and support, critical inquiry, and strategic interventions into projects of dehierarchicalization and decolonization. Most of all, RUSCHWOMAN is witchy, provocative, experimental, and irreverent.
