Art and Art History
September 3, 2015 - Opening
Sonnenschein Gallery / Albright Gallery
The Lake Forest College Invitational Teapot Exhibition brought together eleven artists from every corner of the United States.
In conjunction with the Lake Forest College/Chicago Humanities Festival collaberation “Interzone: A William S. Burroughs Birthday Bash” this exhibit presents video, sculpture and paintings.
Using a broad range of media including drawing, photography, electronics, software development, sound experimentation and industrial design, Abreu explores the accuracy and capacity of science and technology in the context of art. His work produces unusual situations linked to physical, social and political phenomena, including-sound recordings of historic anthems, political speeches on ice, dead birds that continue to be suspended in air by magnetic levitation, and collaboration and balance dynamics at the border between Ciudad Juárez, Mexico and El Paso,Texas using an instrument or carpenter’s level.
