Faculty Sabbatical Lecture:
Gaylen Gerber


Wednesday, October 11, 4:30 p.m.
MacLean Center, 112 S. Michigan Ave., room 707

Gaylen Gerber (Patrick J. and Dania L. Leemputte Family Professorship in Painting and Drawing) will present an overview of his artistic strategies from his early studio work and exhibitions at the Renaissance Society and documenta IX, through his architecturally scaled Backdrops and highly-chromatic rooms at Mudam Luxembourg and Kunstverein Essen, to his recent exhibition at Kunsthaus Bregenz that uses another artwork as the ground for expression. In each instance Gerber addresses art's material condition and its role as a site of exchange.
