of the land behind them features new works by Dan Gunn that continues the artist’s exploration into the psychological and mythological implications of regional self-conception. Focusing on the Midwestern pastoral landscape, Gunn contemplates the countercultural urban and rural divides through elaborately carved draperies with inset scenic imagery as a means of constructing a counterfactual folk art, one not riddled with nostalgia but more accurate to the current state of affairs. The exhibition features new drapery paintings and collages and restages the artist’s ambitious installation from his 2011 exhibition at the MCA Chicago.
