In the East Wing, Corbett vs. Dempsey presents a double debut of two outstanding German artists showing in Chicago for the first time. Tim Berresheim subverts traditional media – painting, printmaking, photography, sculpture – creating Duchampian painting-objects that confound the eye and tease the brain. A whipping, hair-like image cavorts atop a woodgrain background in these one-of-a-kind prints. Matthias Schaufler is a painter and collage-maker based in Berlin. Working with a soft, pastel palette, his highly expressive, figurative paintings are sly and oblique, refracting meaning. Like Berresheim, Schaufler showed with Albert Oehlen (“Leg Show,” Patrick Painter, Santa Monica, 2007).
