At EXPO CHICAGO 2023, Corbett vs. Dempsey is delighted to present works from the gallery’s program across a diversity of mediums. Rebecca Morris—whose paintings are featured in an upcoming survey traveling from the Institute of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, to the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago—contributes a daring new abstraction, as does Molly Zuckerman-Hartung, who will be in conversation with Tyler Blackwell, the curator of her 2021 exhibition Comic Relief at the Blaffer Art Museum in Houston, as part of the fair’s /Dialogues series. CvsD’s booth will feature two “Crystalline Prism” paintings by Josiah McElheny; an important “Apron” sculpture by Diane Simpson; a large aquatint by Charline von Heyl; a trio of mysterious works on paper by Ellen Berkenblit; tondo canvases by Philip Hanson and Brian Calvin; new paintings by Rebecca Shore, Lui Shtini, Roscoe Mitchell, and Gabrielle Garland; a brilliant, small tapestry by Christina Forrer; and an enormous tapestry by David Hartt from his series “The Garden.” Featured historical works include a group of 1970s watercolors by Karl Wirsum; a 1978 geometric abstraction by Thomas H. Kapsalis (who passed away last year, age 97); a beautiful canvas by Miyoko Ito—Kapsalis’ classmate at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago; and a sleek, super weird 1979 painting by Richard Wetzel. As a nod to the current exhibitions at the gallery, the booth also presents related monotypes by Sam Gilliam and Jimmy Wright.
