Tom Sachs: Drawings And Sound Systems

Anthony Gallery is honored to announce Tom Sachs: Drawings and Sound Systems, the second solo presentation of the artist at Anthony Gallery. A public opening is slated for Thursday, July 11th at 5 p.m. at 1360 W. Lake Street, Chicago, IL 60607. This collection of works will remain on display through August 17th, 2024.  Tom Sachs: Drawings and Sound Systems presents a program of the artist’s iconic sculptures, specifically drawings and sound systems, to craft a taxonomy of commodified objects and the systems that build them.  Sachs’ genre defying mixed media sculptures, often recreations of modern icons using everyday materials, show all of the work that goes into producing an object— a reversal of modernization’s trend towards products with cleaner, simpler, and more perfect edges. Sachs’s sculptures are conspicuously handmade; lovingly cobbled together from plywood, resin, steel, plastic, and ceramic. The scars and imperfections in the sculptures tell the story of how they came into being and remove them from the realm of miraculous conception. The themes central to Sachs’ universe focus on American culture and society, which he treats with a heavy dose of humor and irony. He playfully engages with the corporate ecosystem and the idea of 'brand image' by riffing on luxury consumer items and global brands, transforming them through their inclusion in artistic contexts. The handmade exploration of these objects is what ultimately develops the ethos of his studio. Prioritizing the roles of material and process, Sachs’ team of ten functions like a teaching hospital or cult— one that worships plywood and the spirit of transparency to heighten our awareness of modern production. The exhibition will be open to the public from July 12th through August 17th, 2024, and admission is free. Visitors are encouraged to come and explore the works on display.  For more information about the exhibition, please visit the Anthony Gallery website or contact [hidden].  More Info below.
