The Suburban is an independent artist exhibition space in Oak Park, Illinois. We give complete control to the artists in regard to what they choose to produce and exhibit. The space is not driven by commercial interests; rather, it is funded within the economy of a suburban household. Its success is not grounded in sales, press, or the conventional measures set forth by the international art apparatus, but by the individual criteria set forth by the artists and their exhibitions. The Suburban is therefore more closely aligned with the idea of studio practice than that of the site of distribution.
