Jan Tichy. Thin Lines
17 Jan 2019 – 12 Apr 2019
On the occasion of the centenary of the founding of the Bauhaus in 1919, Chicago based artist and educator Jan Tichy has organized a group exhibition for the project space 68projects.
Chicago Grid brings together artists and educators who have previously collaborated with Tichy as teachers and as students, from both sides of the educational exchange. This exhibition questions the concept of the grid in its many forms and implications, giving a nod towards the Berlin Bauhaus artists, who were fascinated by the Chicago street grid system.
The artists in this exhibition include:
Faheem Majeed, Alfonso and Gillion Carrara, Kate Conlon and Boyang Hou, Shawn Decker, Frances Lightbound, David Rueter and Marissa Lee Benedict, and Helen Maria Nugent.
In his solo exhibition Thin Lines at Galerie Kornfeld, Tichy continues to build on the grid, bringing together rare spiritual materials from the Bauhaus in Dessau, allowing these materials to collide with our current social and political reality through their display and engagement in the show.
