Recognized as an important artist of our time, Mel Chin’s work evades easy classification. Analytical and poetic, he conjoins cross-cultural aesthetics with complex ideas. His investigations explore our natural and social ecology and the ways art can provoke greater social awareness and responsibility. Mel Chin: High, Low and In Between features The Funk & Wag from A to Z, originally curated by Ann Harithas for the Nave Museum in Victoria, TX, alongside new configurations of Chin’s recent works that highlight contemporary Surrealism and large-scale assemblage.
