BOLT Resident Juan Camilo Guzmán will engage in a conversation with Terry R. Myers, Critic and independent curator (most recently of “Candida Alvarez: Here” at the Chicago Cultural Center), about the thought process and formation of his solo exhibition “A Cosmetic Decision” currently on view at the Chicago Artists Coalition through June 15, 2017.
“Agility plus likeness, minus unreasonable burden, multiplied by attraction, and divided by history equals the Killer Work of Juan Guzmán”
— Terry R. Myers
THIS EVENT IS FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.
Juan Camilo Guzmán is interested in shopping. He chooses images from mass culture to talk about politics, art, painting, cultural issues, taste, the material world, pleasure, power, sexuality, gender and the role of the artist’s external life in the larger culture. The media he uses includes products, handmade stuff, video, painting or something done by someone else. Also jokes without smiling. Guzmán was born in Bogotá, Colombia where he lived until 2014. He received his MFA in Painting and Drawing from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
