For Ex-Pictures, Christopher Michlig presents a group of paper wall sculptures enacting antagonistic interactions between picture planes and interruptive objects through loose historical references. A limited RISO printed edition derived from preparatory sketches, pattern and color studies will be available in conjunction with the exhibition.
During the opening reception, Michlig will present a short performance program related to central themes of the exhibition consisting of reenactments of short pieces by David Askevold, Mike Kelley, and Barry Macgregor Johnston as well as an original piece.
ABOUT CHRISTOPHER MICHLIG
Christopher Michlig makes work in a wide range of media, including collage, printmaking, sculpture, and video. Michlig’s synthetic compositions and forms are the result of a series of head-on collisions between two-dimensional plotting and three-dimensional space. Michlig’s work has been featured and reviewed in numerous publications, and has been exhibited internationally, most recently in one-person exhibitions at Galleria Giuseppe Pero, Milan; and Devening Projects + Editions, Chicago. Michlig received an MFA from Art Center College of Design, Pasadena, California and he is currently Director of Graduate Studies and Assistant Professor at the University of Oregon Department of Art.
