AN IDEA OF ONE’S OWN: Postconceptual Women Artists
(September 25 – October 31, 2018)
in our Chicago Studio and at ExpoChicago, September 27-30, on Navy Pier.
This exhibition presents recent work by six contemporary women artists including one collaborative lab, each working in various media, and it extends from our Gold Coast studio into our booth at Expo Chicago.
For us, art that is postconceptual, as opposed to the classically conceptual work of the 1960s and 1970s which was defined in the writings of artists like Sol LeWitt and Joseph Kosuth, is art that departs from the purely formalist ontological tradition of literary aesthetics. That art, innovative and original at the time and controversial even today, was based on the proposition that art did not need to be fabricated in order to exist. The post-conceptual works in An Idea of One’s Own each have a message, but it is a message that the artist has chosen to deliver through the presence of a physical object, and is thus capable of transcending the immediate present.
