MCA Exhibitions: Gaylen Gerber

May 25 - September 8, 2013

 

Gaylen Gerber marks the artist’s first exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, which is comprised of two parts: a new commission in the lobby inspired by the late artist Michael Asher, and a color-saturated gallery installation of Gerber’s Supports combined with works from the MCA's collection. Internationally recognized for his series of gray monochrome paintings, Chicago-based artist Gaylen Gerber is more of an interventionist than a painter. Over an almost 40-year career, Gerber’s conceptually-based practice has largely been a support or backdrop for the work of other artists, who he invites to participate or intervene on surfaces he creates, at times layering their work over his own.  This exhibition is organized by Kristin Korolowicz, MCA Marjorie Susman Curatorial Fellow.
