IDOL STRUCTURES – Solo Exhibition at the DePaul Art Museum
September 10 – December 20, 2015 (opening reception September 10, 5:30-8:30)
I am very pleased to announce my solo exhibition of the Idol Structures project at the DePaul Art Museum in Chicago this fall (935 W. Fullerton Ave.). It will be up for several months, so I hope many of you can come out and see it. This is my first major exhibition to include sculptures and installations as well as photographs. There is a busy slate of programming planned at the museum during the exhibition, so keep an eye on the DPAM events calendar.
This exhibition would not have been possible without a generous grant from the David C. and Sarajean Ruttenberg Arts Foundation.
Excitingly, a beautifully designed book is being published in conjunction with the exhibition and will be for sale at the museum and on Amazon. This is a non-traditional book that functions as an art piece itself and includes essays by Greg Harris, the exhibition curator, and David Raskin, Mohn Family Professor of Contemporary Art History at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago..
EXPO CHICAGO – September 17-20, Navy Pier, Chicago.
The DePaul Art Museum will have a booth at Expo Chicago this year featuring my work. There will be different work from the Idol Structures project at Expo than what appears in the museum exhibition. The museum will be selling books and limited edition prints at the fair and a book signing is scheduled for Saturday afternoon.
