Esau McGhee: Indistinctly Anywhere

@ The Union League Club of Chicago

65 West Jackson Boulevard

Opening Thursday, October 2nd, from 5:30PM - 7PM

On view through Friday, October 31st

Much of Esau McGhee’s research and artistic practice concentrates on a critique of image construction through strategies of image making. Beginning with his photographic investigation of urban space in his native Philadelphia he has increasingly honed in on the topics of class and race construction. His most recent work has shifted from conventional strategies of representation, be it the use of the camera lens or traditional collage, to sculptural practice and large-scale installation of grid based printed works. In both cases he has deployed the found object as a strategy to further investigate the constructed image, focusing on the “image” of urban racial construction and the site of its consumption
