Mackie’s work spans a range of media. Her practice is empirical, reliant on observation but prompted by personal reflection and a curiosity for the natural world. Her exhibition at the Renaissance Society will include large-scale sculptures, glass and ceramic works, a series of indented wooden panels, as well as an arrangement of found and natural objects. Central to the exhibition is color: the production and consumption of color, and the association of color and action. Mackie uses color to visualize intention, as both conceptual tool and ancient human device.

Christina Mackie (born 1956, Canada) lives and works in London. Recent solo exhibitions include The Judges III, Nottingham Castle Museum (2013); Painting the Weights, Chisenhale Gallery, London; Kunsthal Charlottenborg, Copenhagen (2012); Us, Victorian College of the Arts, Melbourne (2010); The Judges, Supportico Lopez, Berlin (2010); and Art Now Sculpture Court, Tate Britain (2007).

Founded in 1915, the Renaissance Society is a non-collecting museum of contemporary art. It is committed to supporting artists through the commissioning of new work and the production of exhibitions, publications, and interdisciplinary education programs. All programs are admission-free and open to the public.

The Renaissance Society is located on the campus of the University of Chicago, in Cobb Hall, on the fourth floor. It is open Tuesday to Friday from 10am to 5pm, and Saturday and Sunday from noon to 5pm. Visit renaissancesociety.org to learn more about the exhibitions and events.
