Things To Be Next To - Contemporary Art Chicago | Threewalls

three-walls.org [cached]

Featuring recent and new work by Alberto Aguilar (Chicago), Peter Fagundo (Chicago), James Woodfill (Kansas City), and Warren Rosser (Kansas City), the exhibition will run September 4- October 15, 2010 in Kansas City at CSF's la Esquina (an Urban Culture Project venue), and at Threewalls in Chicago, November 5-December 11, 2010.
Like many Chicago-based artists, Alberto Aguilar and Peter Fagundo both work in their own homes, creating artworks that are intimate in scale and substance. From Fagundo's gorgeous yet emphatically humble assemblages of painted cardboard, wood, or fabric scraps, to Aguilar's informally formal "towers" of stacked chairs, draped laundry, toys or rolls of tape, and tender, transfixing audio-recorded collaborations with his children-these two artists gently and disarmingly mine the potential of domestic environment as studio. Alberto Aguilar Alberto Aguilar was born in Chicago, IL in 1974 and raised in Cicero, IL. In 1997, he received his BFA in painting and drawing from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and was married. Alberto had his first child in 1998 during a two-year hiatus in Phoenix, AZ, then returned to Chicago to receive his MFA in painting and drawing from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and purchased his first home in Cicero, IL in 2001. For five years Alberto taught part-time at various colleges throughout the Chicago area. With the assistance of students, he painted several murals in and around Chicago. In 2004 Alberto had his last child, bringing the total to four. Also in 2004, Alberto got his first full-time job at McHenry County College in Crystal Lake, IL, where he was appointed as Professor of Art History. In 2005 he took part in Blue Sky Project, a summer arts community and residency program, which opened him up to a more direct mode of collaboration with other artists and youth. Around the same time Alberto started documenting everyday occurrences, family life and household chores and designating them as his artwork. In 2006 he was appointed as a full-time Professor of Art at Harold Washington College in downtown Chicago where he teaches painting, drawing and art appreciation. In 2007 Alberto started Pedestrian Project, an art initiative dedicated to making art accessible and available to people from all walks of life. Alberto currently lives on the southwest side of Chicago, on the path of airplanes, near Midway airport. In his current work, every aspect of his daily life and exchanges with others are treated as creative acts. Artist website.


Occurences Around the State of the Art Opening | Temporary Art Review

As a correspondence to this piece, read a review by Alberto Aguilar's daughter on the Crystal Bridges blog here.
This text is part of a larger series, State of the Art: A Social Response. To put it in context, please read the other responses here. About the artist Alberto Aguilar teaches at Harold Washington College in Chicago where he also coordinates Pedestrian Project, an initiative dedicated to making contemporary art practice more available and accessible to his students. Over time he has been moved to integrate his various life roles with his creative practice and work within his immediate surroundings rather than a studio. Using materials at hand he captures intimate discoveries, fleeting moments and exchange with others in tangible form. Aguilar has presented at the Queens Museum and the Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art. His work has been exhibited at the Elmhurst Art Museum, The MCA Chicago, Steven Zevitas Gallery and the Crystal Bridges Museum.

Alberto Aguilar: Said Contents - Contemporary Art Chicago | Threewalls

Home > Shop > Alberto Aguilar: Said Contents
Alberto Aguilar Alberto Aguilar: Said Contents Alberto Aguilar's practice draws on his home and work life as parent and teacher, developing systems for art-making that are integrated into and draw on the day-to-day. While Aguilar develops most of his ideas-from photographs to sound-work-at his own home, some of these projects spill over into interventions into the homes of friends, colleagues and even strangers. For Threewalls, Aguilar produced a series of 40 clipboards painted with discounted mistake paint from a home improvement store, using simple marks and organizing colors using a basic value structure. He made this series of paintings in two three-hour sessions. In between those sessions, he made drawings on a mini legal pad, using ink and correction tape. These drawings are attached to each clipboard, contained in heavy duty zip lock bags for safe keeping. They can be displayed together or separately. Each work is individually made and represents two distinct moments of the artist's time. In 1974 Alberto Aguilar was born in Chicago, Illinois, where he currently resides. In 1976, his parents opened the first Mexican grocery store in Cicero Illinois which they named La Grande. In 1997 upon receiving his BFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) he married Sonia Leticia Guillen. Together they have four children, half of which are girls. Four years later Alberto received his MFA also from SAIC. Currently he is a tenured instructor of studio art at Harold Washington College, one of the City Colleges of Chicago. There he coordinates Pedestrian Project, an initiative devoted to making art accessible to people of all walks of life. Aguilar's current practice merges his various life roles and attempts to capture fleeting moments, personal discoveries, and his interaction with others using whatever medium is at hand.
