Press Release

Opening reception Friday, March 21st, 2014

In the gallery’s East Wing, we are proud to present Clock Work Marilyn , a selection of early screen prints by Keiichi Tanaami.  These aggressive, quasi-pornographic works on paper from the early 1970s are formally sensitive and emotionally explosive.  The Japanese artist’s prints have a spiritual kinship with artists like Ed Paschke, but the work has never previously been shown in Chicago.
