Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA) Chicago UBS 12 × 12: New Artists / New Work: Presents Dan Gunn

The Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA) Chicago UBS 12 × 12: New Artists/New Work: presents Dan Gunn on view September 3-October 2, 2011.

Gunn’s abstract objects simultaneously inhabit the realms of painting and sculpture. In his three-dimensional compositions and installations, he explores perceptual phenomena using materials such as glitter, tinsel, chair caning, holographic paper, and patterned fabrics. His structures echo forms of display and domesticity while incorporating familiar found objects.

For his UBS 12 x 12 presentation, Gunn explores the “depth” of painting by embedding a series of objects in a large horizontal surface.
