Richard Rezac: Address
Jul 26, 2018 (6pm)
Book Launch

Please RSVP

Please join us to celebrate the launch of Richard Rezac: Address, a new publication documenting and expanding on the artist’s recent Renaissance Society exhibition, supported by a grant from the Graham Foundation. The catalogue features a generous selection of images, a conversation between the artist and curator Solveig Øvstebø, and new texts by Jennifer R. Gross, James Rondeau, and Matthew Goulish. Hosted in partnership with the Renaissance Society, this evening features a reading by Matthew Goulish.

Richard Rezac lives and works in Chicago. His sculpture has been shown nationally and internationally, most notably in a 2006 survey of his work at the Portland Art Museum. He has recently exhibited at James Harris Gallery, Seattle (2017), the DePaul Art Museum, Chicago (2016), Galerie Isabella Bortolozzi, Berlin (2015), Marc Foxx, Los Angeles (2015), and Rhona Hoffman Gallery (2014). Rezac has received fellowship grants from the Guggenheim Foundation, the Joan Mitchell Foundation, and the Tiffany Foundation, and in 2006, the Rome Prize from the American Academy in Rome. He is an adjunct professor at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

Matthew Goulish is co-founder and dramaturg of the performance group Every house has a door, and teaches in the Writing Program at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. 

The Renaissance Society at the University of Chicago presents contemporary art exhibitions, events, and publications. “The Ren”—as it is known by many—is an independent, non-collecting museum driven by an uncompromising commitment to artists and their ideas. All exhibitions and events are free and open to the public.
