| Extensive investigation of the American multimedia artist's entire oeuvre
The oeuvre of Mel Chin (* 1952 in Houston) encompasses a wide variety of media including sculpture, video, drawing, painting, land art, and performance art. Eschewing a trademark style, the common thread through Chin’s practice is his conceptual rigor, thoughtful historicism, and concern for social justice. His land-based works such as Revival Field from the early 1990s and Operation Paydirt (2008-ongoing), garnered significant international press for presenting the science of soil remediation as an art form. Challenging the traditional concept of a retrospective as a linear presentation of a single individual’s work over time, the publication celebrates the artist’s practice of constant evolution, re-examination, and collaboration. The catalogue will also include an extensive illustrated chronology of his career. Exhibition: New Orleans Museum of Art, February 21–May 25, 2014 | And further venues
