Keiichi Tanaami CLOCK WORK MARILYN 4 1972 silkscreen print on paper 18 1/2 x 24 1/2 inches
Opening reception Friday, March 21st, 2014
In the gallery’s East Wing, we are proud to present Clock Work Marilyn, a selection of early screen prints by Keiichi Tanaami. These aggressive, quasi-pornographic works on paper from the early 1970s are formally sensitive and emotionally explosive. The Japanese artist’s prints have a spiritual kinship with artists like Ed Paschke, but the work has never previously been shown in Chicago.
