On view through Sunday, August 3rd
This Friday, artist Zachary Cahill unveils his site-specific banner commissioned for the Smart Museum’s courtyard. The banner, entitled Idyllic—affair of the heart, is the third and concluding chapter of an ongoing project, USSA 2012: Wellness Center. Through this long-term work, Cahill explores the parallel traditions of the artistic retreat and the health spa or sanatorium.
Zachary Cahill will also present a series of brief performances in conjunction with his banner installation. Beginning August 30, Cahill will mark the last Friday of each University of Chicago pay-period by playing bagpipe music from a portable PA system in the Smart’s courtyard.
Throughout the year, a set of postcards created by Cahill will be on sale in the Smart Shop.
