Visiting Artist

Study for the Moonite War Memorial: Grass Hawk by Andrew Barco, 2016, carved

Andrew Barco is an object, installation and performance maker based in Chicago, Illinois. Barco earned his MFA in sculpture from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. His work is concerned with the often strange and improbable ways ideas and habits can be transmitted across cultural landscapes and through time. Andrew’s work uses craft and industrial histories, quirky and edgy relational gestures, and philosophical inquiry to create affective and thoughtful encounters. His work has been featured in select group exhibitions including those in Durham NC, Baltimore MD, Hartford, CT, and Chicago, IL, New Orleans, LA. A recent group show of note was the ACRE Projects show “What We Don’t Know” at Heaven Gallery (2015). Solo exhibitions include: “Imminence: A Life” at Threewalls, in Chicago, IL (2014), “Oblique Negotiations” at the Fivesevendell Project Space in Boston, MA (2010) and “Passion for the Real” at West Village and “Sonnets to Orpheus” at Transom Gallery in Durham, NC (2007).
