Focus: Mel Bochner

Art Institute of Chicago, Chicago, IL

2006

The Art Institute of Chicago received funding for the publication of a catalogue in conjunction with the exhibition Focus: Mel Bochner, on view October 5, 2006-January 7, 2007.  A leading practitioner of conceptual art, Mel Bochner was one of the first artists in the 1960s to introduce language into the visual field. Including works on paper, painting, sculpture, photography, and installation, the exhibition will bring together, for the first time, an overview of the artist’s language-based works created over four decades: 1966-2006.
