Press Release

Two divergent lineages out of modernism are represented in this survey of recent works by Chicago mainstays Faulkner and Kapsalis. James Garrett Faulkner’s exquisitely strange collages build on the traditions of Max Ernst and Marcel Duchamp, while Tom Kapsalis’s painted geometric abstractions descend from constructivism and the Bauhaus.

A 36-page color catalog is available.
