1301PE is pleased to announce its second solo exhibition with internationally acclaimed artist Jessica Stockholder. She will be presenting site-specific and freestanding works that engage with and activate the interior and exterior spaces of the gallery.
With installations it’s the building, the architecture, or you might say it’s the place that I work on top of; with the smaller pieces I work on top of or in relation to stuff that I collect. —Jessica Stockholder
For twenty-five years, Jessica Stockholder has challenged our relationship to the world around us through making objects. Stockholder’s work transforms materials from our daily lives into painterly sculptural objects and installations. From the large-scale installations of Color Jam in Chicago and Peer Out to See at the Palacio de Cristal, Madrid, to the intimate works of Sex in the Office and LIFT, Stockholder captures our eye with an array of visual moments that coalesce into a singular composition.
Jessica Stockholder was born in Seattle, Washington. She lives and works in Chicago, IL, where she is the Chair of the Department of Visual Arts at the University of Chicago. She has had recent solo museum exhibitions at Musée d'Art Moderne de Saint-Étienne Métropole, Saint-Priest-en-Jarez, France; Frac des Pays de la Loire, Nantes, France; . Her work is represented in the permanent collections of the Whitney Museum of Art, the Art Institue of Chicago, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Kunstmuseum St. Gallen, and the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam.
