saki is thrilled to present Remain in Light photography by Kirstie Shanley on Friday, August 9th from 6-9pm!

The show will highlight Shanley’s signature concert photography. As the artist states it: 

David Byrne by Kirstie Shanley
Remain In Light will illuminate the sense of the experience of live music and all the emotions that entails, aiming to show the ties between us all so that life and light carry certain meaning. 
When we remain in light, we realize how incredible and unique each human being is and we attempt, even when it is a struggle, to make this world a better one. To remain in light is to live up to our full potential, whether we have a camera in front of our eyes or not.

Kirstie is a Chicago based photographer who has made a name for herself capturing some of music’s greatest acts such as St. Vincent, David Byrne, Low, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Yo La Tengo, The Cure, Andrew Bird, Leonard Cohen, and many more. Her work has been featured on Pitchfork, Brooklyn Vegan, Gapers Block and Chicago Magazine, among others!

The opening will include live music from Karaoke, a Chicago artist who is working to induce a hypnagogic state in listeners through overladed synths and drifting Playstation soundtracks. There will also be music from Cinchel, a Chicago based musician working with guitar, effects and a laptop to create abstract ambient music that is both minimal and dense. 

Please join us Friday, August 9th from 6-9 pm for the opening of Remain in Light photography by Kirstie Shanley. Enjoy a great night of fine art and live music, with food and beverages provided by saki. This event is free and BYOB!
