Chicago, IL / 2013

Modern Cartoonist, the Art of Daniel Clowes

This exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago was first developed as an installation for the Oakland Museum of California in 2012. A series of uncannily-scaled furnishings engaged the body of the viewer at a range of intimate scales. To create the gallery furniture, relief drawings were prepared in collaboration with Clowes, then translated into CNC-milled panels, custom upholstery patterns and fabricated steel furniture. An expanded version of the exhibition incorporated large-scale reliefs—digitally fabricated in collaboration with the artist—onto the gallery walls.
