Mel Chin: Inescapable Histories
Chin is known for his broad range of approaches in art, from the making of objects defined by poetic gesture to the organization of large-scale conceptual works which require multidisciplinary teamwork. Human-scale sculptures, studies for works, paintings, drawings and site-specific installations are included in the exhibition. He is one of the most innovative artists to make global concerns a theme in his work as he considers a wide range of cultural, political and ecological dilemmas. The exhibition features the nuances in Chin's work which have not been examined, such as his working processes, research methods , the occasional sense of humor, and his obsession to imbue his work with poetic beauty. Human-scale sculptures, maquettes or studies for works, paintings, drawings and site-specific installations will be included. A special program is being planned.
