Press Release

At Expo Chicago 2024, Corbett vs. Dempsey presents a multifarious mix of artists from its program. On the front line, the booth will feature major works by four of Chicago's greatest sculptors: H.C. Westermann, Joseph Goto, Diane Simpson, and Richard Rezac. Roger Brown's incredible 1979 hybrid Visit the Oregon Coast bridges second and third dimensions, with a shelf of taxidermied seabirds. As always, painting occupies a central position in the gallery's pantheon, and this year is no exception, with new work in several media by Ellen Berkenblit, Brian Calvin, Gabrielle Garland, Magalie Guérin, Roscoe Mitchell, Lui Shtini, Omar Velázquez, and Molly Zuckerman-Hartung. Spotlight sections will present multiple paintings by Karl Wirsum (in celebration of his concurrent New York exhibitions), Nicole Eisenman and Rebecca Morris (in celebration of their shows at the MCA Chicago), Ted Halkin (in anticipation of his upcoming show at the Art Institute of Chicago), and the indomitable 98-year-old Dominick Di Meo (in anticipation of his upcoming gallery show at CvsD).
