Mitchell F. Chan: Foundations

Jul 22, 2010 - Aug 15, 2010

It has been a spectacularly eventful twelve months since Mitchell F. Chan's last solo show at Engine Gallery; a year that has seen the 27 year-old artist notch considerable achievements across a variety of disciplines. In late 2009, Chan relocated to the United States after being awarded a Trustee Scholarship by the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, studying in their Art & Technology Studies Department. Shortly thereafter, he and collaborator Brad Hindson made their major American museum debut with a 400 square-foot installation in the Corcoran Gallery's Helios: Eadweard Muybridge in a Time of Change. Their work appeared alongside heavyweights of photography such as Ed Ruscha, Sarah Charlesworth, and Muybridge himself. His winter installation in Toronto, Visions of the Amen, earned plaudits in the national media for distilling unprecedented technical achievement into an understated sculptural beauty. Most recently, his sculptural work was presented in an exhibition hosted by the Richard Gray Gallery in the John Hancock Tower. That exhibition was spearheaded by internationally-acclaimed sculptor Jaume Plensa as a forum for imagining new public art projects in Chicago.

 Now, in his exhibition Foundations at Engine Gallery, Chan returns to the paintings and wall-hung kinetic works that have served as the launching point for his career. The exhibition opens Thursday, July 22nd, 2010 and runs until Sunday, August 15th, 2010.
