Announcement Number: 11808, Posted 2016-09-20 13:44:10
Exhibitor: The School of the Art Institute of Chicago's Visiting Artists Program
The School of the Art Institute of Chicago's Visiting Artists Program presents:
Tal R Tuesday, October 4, 6:00 p.m. The Art Institute of Chicago, Rubloff Auditorium, 230 S. Columbus Dr.
Tal R was born in Tel Aviv to a Danish mother and Czechoslovakian Jewish father. Raised in Denmark, his childhood was defined by his family's split identity. The duality of his heritage is recognized in his work, which offers sensations both celebratory and sinister. Saturated color is weighted by shadow; festooned and radiant scenes, are simultaneously claustrophobic and labyrinthine. His subject matter is intentionally easy to describe, but the meaning is enigmatic. He works with a variety of media-collage, sculpture, installation, painting-and intuitively culls imagery from diverse sources.
