John Marriott

@ Gallery 400

400 S Peoria St, Chicago, IL 60607

Opening Tuesday, November 2nd, at 5PM

John Marriott is a Vancouver-born artist who lives and works in Toronto, Canada.  He works in video, installation, performance, and urban interventions, and is also an active writer and curator. Marriott’s projects are often funny, parodies of existing art works or genres, verbal or visual puns, or other types of silliness. Gary Michael Dault has described Marriott’s work as “so darned genial it’s positively disarming.” In 2002, his video, Vegetative States (a collaboration with Steve Reinke), screened at the International Festival of Film and Video in Rotterdam (Netherlands).
