Currently on view at Western Exhibition, Chicago is “HEAD,” a massive group exhibition featuring work that riffs on portraiture. Other interpretations of the word “head”include suggestive work where viewers are invited to stick their own heads into a small rectangular box to view a miniature exhibition of small artworks by Ann Green Kelly curated by Riepenhoff; and Academy Records’ video and ephemera which take inspiration from the cult 1968 film “Head,” a film that follows made-for-TV rock band, The Monkees, on a kaleidoscopic journey of propaganda and concert footage. Also included in the exhibition are a collection of paintings, works on paper, sculpture, photography, and an artist book.
“Head” is on view through March 8, 2014.
