DESCRIPTION

Document is pleased to present I want to be an honest man and a good writer., a solo exhibition of new works by Marco Braunschweiler.

The work takes the starting point of the Lilium Oriental Stargazer, developed in Southern California in the 1970s. As both canonical still life subject and prototypical commodity these flowers circulate across the United States person-to-person via their sale.

Marco Braunschweiler (b. 1985) is a Swiss-American artist, curator and lecturer based in Los Angeles. He was the director of Golden Age, Chicago; has presented programs at the Art Institute of Chicago, and White Flag Projects, St. Louis. Braunschweiler has exhibited at the Swiss Institute, New York, the Green Gallery, Milwaukee, the Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia, and The Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago.

An essay by Zachary Kaplan accompanies the exhibition.
