Drawings and Paintings by Mel Chin

This exhibition will present an array of drawings and "surgically modified" paintings by conceptual artist Mel Chin, several of which are on public view for the first time. The drawings will include projections of projects for the public and private realm, installation plans, selected studies, and intimate sketches, which as an amalgam, represent the complex creative gestures of Mel Chin. Also included in this exhibition are examples from his "Unauthorized Collaborations" series, an innovative body of work presented in Europe for the first time. For this series Chin modifies pre-existing antique paintings from the nineteenth and twentieth century, cutting and folding these canvases to create new meanings. Chin regards this work as an "unauthorized" collaboration with the original painters of these canvases.
