| The Beauty in the Everyday

Hugo McCloud’s art has evolved through a rigorous process of inventive experimentation. Finding beauty in the everyday, his work incorporates unconventional, often overlooked industrial materials, including single-use plastic bags, aluminum plates, and bronze panels treated with acid. McCloud’s ingenious approach to materiality is informed by a deep interest in social and political concerns. Over the past fifteen years, McCloud has produced a remarkable oeuvre brought together for the first time in this new survey. This publication coincides with the artist’s first solo museum exhibition at The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum in Ridgefield, Connecticut.

The works of the American artist HUGO MCCLOUD (*1980) are represented in numerous collections, such as the Brooklyn Museum and the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, DC. He has had solo exhibitions in New York, Los Angeles, and Turin.
