Jorge Mujica: Palimpsest

@ Pentagon

961 W 19th St, 1F, Chicago, IL 60608

Opening Saturday, April 17th, from 7PM - 11PM

On view through Saturday, May 15th

In Palimpsest, Jorge Mujica looks critically at painting and sculpture to create hybrid objects that examine the use of painterly materials and the interaction of space. The hybrid objects are created with hand crafted stretcher bars and commercially bought materials to compose a contemporary perspective examining the architecture of the pentagon gallery. The result is a conceptual intersection between minimalist sculptor Donald Judd and the assemblage work of Jessica Stockholder. Like a palimpsest, the work shows the art historical context he is dealing with and makes room to insert his perspective.

Human curiosity can be described as an internal pursuit to understand the environment one encounters; artists just so happen to examine the dichotomies involved in the process of making and reflect the curiosities they see in the world.
