gallery 1028

a raw urban space on chicago's goose island

in the 1860s, goose island was inhabited mainly by its namesake birds and a few enterprising squatters. things have changed quite a bit since then, but at heart the island is still a mixture: old and new, high and low, nature and urbanity. gallery 1028 is a venue that encapsulates that dichotomy well, epitomizing quality with distinction and class while staying true to its roots. we take this holistic approach in everything we do here, striving to produce events that will echo down the caverns of memory for years to come.
