An often heard remark on the economics of poetry, at least among those unlucky enough to be listening, is that it devalues the paper on which it is printed.

For our second show of 2016, Western Exhibitions unearths a grouping of never-seen-before drawings by Robyn O’Neil. The impetus for this show came from a tweet by O’Neil in January 2015 that read “Just realized my favorite show I've ever had is everything we kept in the flatfile during I WANT BLOOD”. The show opens with a free public reception from 5 to 8pm on Friday, March 18 and will run through Ap...   [more]

In doing so, she often calls attention to our power, or lack of power, to resist such forces and the complicated act of looking itself. Her sculptu...   [more]

When Vincent van Gogh decided to become an artist at the age of 27, he had already lived in 16 cities and had failed at five different professions. Though finally settled in his career, his home life was anything but—Van Gogh remained a wanderer until his death 10 years later, despite his dream of a permanent home. With each move, the change in environment took his artistic aesthetic in...   [more]

This exhibition—presented only at the Art Institute of Chicago—brings together all three versions of The Bedroom for the first time in North America, o...   [more]
