Chris Schanck Artist Talk

January 17, 2019
6:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Please join us for a discussion with designer Chris Schanck. “In every piece I try to fight a sense of good taste,” says Chris Schanck. “Imperfection is the standard.” His designs, each one unique, are made in a workshop in Detroit by a collective of skilled makers, including women from the immigrant Bangladeshi community. Though made entirely of inexpensive materials, Schanck’s work achieves an effect of uncommon luxury. The effect hovers somewhere between historical references (like Aztec gold work and Art Deco architecture) and futurist science fiction. Schanck’s work can currently be seen in the exhibition When Attitudes Become Chairs, on view now at Pizzuti Collection of the Columbus Museum of Art. Register here for this free talk, which takes place at Pizzuti Collection of the Columbus Museum of Art.
