Chris Kallmyer: Sheep, Failure, and the Emergent Potential of Site

Thursday, December 6, 2012 at 6:00pm to 8:00pm

1104 S. Wabash Ave., 205 1104 S Wabash Ave, Chicago, IL 60605

Visiting Artist Lecture: Chris Kallmyer

Chris Kallmyer makes work with everyday objects like sheep, lawnmowers, car horns, and cheese to create site-specific works in places like museums, open fields, igloos, and parking structures. He will be talking about his unique path from playing in punk bands in DC, his brief career as a orchestral musician in Europe, his role as dedicated cheese-monger, and current work making events and installations that articulate the dynamic between art and life — exploring the processes, customs, and environments through which humans have altered landscape and place. Chris lives in Los Angeles where he works with Machine Project and a rich community of artists and musicians in the north-east part of the city.
