SPECIAL GUEST LECTURE: Tony Tasset —

Oak Park Art League, 01.12.2017

In conjunction with our exhibition OFF THE GRID, the Oak Park Art League presents a special guest lecture by Chicago artist, Tony Tasset, who will be discussing his work Artists Monument, recently featured at the Whitney Museum 2014 Biennial. The multicolored grid of Tasset’s sculpture displays the names of 392,486 modern and contemporary artists, ranging from Pablo Picasso and Andy Warhol to emerging artists with a single exhibition to their credit. In partnering big name artists with the nearly unknown, Tasset uses this public monument as an equalizer, artists alphabetically sequenced and hierarchy dispelled. Please join us for this very engaging lecture!
