Ivan Albright at the Art Institute of Chicago

Fri 4 May 2018 - Sun 5 Aug 2018

An exhibition of Chicago native Ivan Albright (1897 - 1983) who remains one of the most provocative artists of the 20th century, a “master of the macabre” famous for his richly detailed paintings of ghoulish subjects.

This exhibition, the first of Albright’s work in more than twenty years, explores how his uncompromising vision challenged conventional notions of art and beauty, earning him fame as well as notoriety. Featuring more than 30 works from the museum’s permanent collection—the largest repository of Albright works in the world—Flesh offers a focused retrospective of the artist’s most enduring masterpieces, which even today retain the power to shock, move, and fascinate.
