Artist Talk: Park McArthur

The Art Institute of Chicago, Rubloff Auditorium, 230 S. Columbus Dr.

The School of the Art Institute of Chicago’s Visiting Artists Program presents Park McArthur. Park McArthur creates work that varies materially and formally and often engages critiques of autonomy through the ready-made. The artist is interested in dependency in its many instantiations, but particularly under the guidance and instruction of debility and disability. McArthur’s works often take the form of sculptures and installations that are conceptually driven and made of utilitarian objects.

Presented in partnership with the Society for Contemporary Art
