Speaker Series: Jan Tichy: Artes in Horto
April 14 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
International artist, Jan Tichy is an inaugural artist for the new project Art on theMART – a digital art installation projecting on the facade of the Merchandise Mart building. In this talk, Jan will review this work with us and talk about his practice.
“Jan Tichy’s (contribution to Art on theMART), Artes in Horto – Seven Gardens for Chicago considers the work of seven local, historically consecutive artists who considered nature to be a significant influence on their practice. The natural elements from their artworks, animated and mapped on theMART’s facade, will grow into projected gardens of local art.” – artonthemart.com
Tichy is a contemporary artist and educator. Working at the intersection of video, sculpture, architecture, and photography, his conceptual work is socially and politically engaged. Born in Prague in 1974, Tichy studied art in Israel before earning his MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where he is now Associate Professor at Department of Photography and Department of Art & Technology Studies.
