Spring 2015


MetaModern

January 30 through April, 2015
East Gallery

Curated by Judith Hoos Fox and Ginger Duggin

In the fresh and provocative work presented in MetaModern, leading and emerging artists refer literally or conceptually to design objects of the mid-century. These now historic objects have gained the status of icon, emblem, and cultural signifier. It is a testament to their enduring power that these objects now catalyze a generation of artists too young to have experienced modernism firsthand, to return to them in a spirit of critique and homage.

The artists in this exhibition, most of whom were born in the 1960s, do not adapt modern or quasi-modernist forms to create a referential stylistic visual vocabulary. Instead, they adopt the actual vocabulary of the modern movement to question the content of style and its relationship to history. A selection of artists includes John Armleder, Josiah McElheny, Jane Simpson, and James Welling, as well as Chicago-based Iñigo Manglano-Ovalle and Illinois-based Conrad Bakker.

Guest curated by Judith Hoos Fox and Ginger Duggan, this exhibition will travel to four other venues and will have an accompanying catalogue.

Exhibition Details



The History of Art According to William Wegman

January 30 through July 2015
Contemporary Gallery

Curated by William Wegman

This exhibition will feature a variety of media created by the New York-based artist William Wegman, and will mainly highlight Wegman’s recent postcard paintings and framed photographs. The artist is most known for large-scale photographs of his beloved Weimaraners, but his postcard paintings are process works that become an extension of a single, or a few postcards.



Speculative Visions of Pragmatic Architecture

January 30 through May 2015
Gelvin Noel Annex and Light Court

Curated by Jeff Pass

Faculty within the detail+FABRICATION Program of the Illinois School of Architecture’s are exploring the role of fabrication and making. Rather than privileging finished products, objects, or built work, these designers are placing an increased focus on the process of making as a means for exploring alternative outcomes. This work explores the conception and evolution of ideas manifested in physical form.

Utilizing work conceived and constructed within the School of Architecture in the last year as part of competition entries, successful grants, research and collaborations with architecture students–large-format print, axonometric drawings, renderings, and photographs, in addition to narrative and speculative artifacts and material studies, are proposed to be exhibited.
