Time: 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM CDT
Event Description:
Burnet Fine Art & Advisory’s newest exhibition showcases a selection of artworks by Chris Larson.

In Larson's newest work titled Depression Groove, he takes early American country music ephemera to revisit themes from his ongoing body of work titled Heavy Rotation, a term that refers to the frequent radio airplay of a record album. In this new body of work, Larson continues his ongoing research into mark-making through removal and mechanical gestures. As a sculptor, he approaches these works using methods of subtraction, repetition, and play to document labor in the context of the studio.  

Chris Larson is a multi-media artist based in St. Paul, MN. He is an Associate Professor of Art at the University of Minnesota and the publisher of INREVIEW, a print publication presenting critical responses to art in the Twin Cities. Since receiving his MFA from Yale University in 1991, Larson has received numerous awards including a New Work Project Grant from The Harpo Foundation, a Louis Comfort Tiffany Award and most recently was awarded a 2018 Guggenheim Fellowship. Larson has had solo exhibitions at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, MN, Katonah Museum of Art in Katonah, NY and his work was included in the 2014 Whitney Biennial. In 2018, Larson’s work was included in the 11th Bienal do Mercosul in Porto Alegre, Brazil and a solo 10-year survey exhibition at the Contemporary Art Center in Cincinnati, OH.
