Founded in the balmy summer of 2004, Imperfect Articles is the collaborative effort of artists Noah Singer & Mike Andrews. Based in the Humbolt Park area of Chicago, Illinois, Imperfect Articles has been featured in Time Out Chicago, The Chicago Reader, Chicago Magazine, The New City (Chicago), Flare Magazine, Venus, XL8R, Cargo and W Magazine. Merging a clothing brand and site-less gallery, Imperfect Articles takes an experimental approach to curatorial practice with limited-edition, hand-dyed and hand screen-printed t-shirts. Imperfect Articles challenges the relationship between image, audience and "exhibition" space with a new model of distribution that highlights work by emerging and established artists alike, conflating concepts of fine art, design and fashion. Each shirt is an original, one-of-a-kind, numbered edition; our newest shirts are pressings of 30, 40 or 50 shirts only. Once the shirt is sold that's it. All our shirts are hand-dyed, 100% cotton American Apparel short sleeve, fine jersey tees. Imperfect Articles is an on-going project and usually print between 50-100 new designs a year. We also can be found at various art fairs in Chicago, New York, Miami and Switzerland -- join our mailing list to keep up on our latest project!
