The Grand Spectacle: Collages by Doug Stapleton

February 10 – May 27, 2012

Chicago artist Doug Stapleton cuts images from art books and combines them with contemporary imagery to set up visually ambiguous narratives. These figurative collages visually respond to the grand spectacle and drama of western art history, often creating surreal juxtapositions of past and present.
