Amina Ross: Man’s Country


Curated by John Neff and Rebecca Walz

October 16th, 2021 - November, 13th 2021
Opening Reception: October 16th, 2021, 6 – 9 PM


Man’s Country Chicago -- at forty-four the city’s oldest gay bathhouse -- closed its doors on New Year’s Eve 2017 with a thirteen-hour-long party called Loose Ends. While living in Chicago’s Andersonville neighborhood in the early 2010s, Amina Ross often passed the bathhouse in its final months of operation, curious about what lay inside but concerned that they wouldn’t be admitted because of their embodiment. For their solo exhibition at Iceberg Projects, Ross has used publicly available footage of Man’s Country’s interior to create a three dimensional animated model of the club’s lounge and performance space, placing themself within the architecture virtually. Projected onto canted screens crafted from reclaimed lumber, and interacting with other sculptural and sonic elements, this representation of a specific place in time becomes the vehicle for expansive visual-spatial thinking about structures coming undone, manhood, personhood, and belonging.


A publication featuring text generated by Ross and Bao Nguyen, and a poster designed with Avery Youngblood, will extend the exhibition beyond Iceberg’s physical gallery.
