IAIR 10.3 Artists' Dialogue & Public Opening: Henning Bohl, Roy McMakin, Adam Schreiber

Release Date: 2010-11-17

Michael Darling, Chief Curator at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, serves as guest curator for Artpace’s IAIR 10.3, which showcases new works created locally by artists-in-residence Adam Schreiber (Austin), Henning Bohl (Berlin), and Roy McMakin (Seattle). Known for creating photographs of outdated technology (Schreiber), three-dimensional modernist paintings (Bohl), and surrealist furniture (McMakin), Artpace’s new kids on the block found common ground by re-imagining ever-present themes and concepts ? abandoned corporate spaces, the ubiquitous gray area between sculpture and painting, and unobtainable (and even unusable) home furnishings. While all three residents successfully challenge boundaries, a quote from Bohl sums things up nicely: “It is a sign of the times that there is not really so much left to invent.” Free, 6-8:30pm (artists’ dialogue from 6:30-7:30pm), Artpace, 445 N Main, (210) 212-4900, artpace.org.
