Nearly six years running, Iceberg Projects is an exceptionally serious alternative gallery in a city that already boasts a prolific alt art scene. In the private carriage house of the backyard of Daniel S. Berger, the sharply curated space presents a bold and smartly political program. Exhibitions have featured work by artists like Gregg Bordowitz, Hunter Reynolds, Barbara DeGenevieve, John Neff and Robert Buck, offering Chicagoans a raw, challenging and erotic confrontation with aesthetics. Opening just before this year’s contentious election, the upcoming exhibition “Broken Flag,” co-curated by Berger and the Museum of Contemporary Art’s Omar Kholeif, pointedly addresses queer identity in America’s current state of violence and dissensus.
