"Tom Friedman"
2000-07-08 until 2000-10-01
Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago
Chicago, IL, USA

This exhibition of work by Tom Friedman is the first museum survey of the artist's career. Friedman, who graduated from the University of Illinois at Chicago, is known for his use of such common materials as toothpaste, toilet paper, chewing gum, and pencil shavings to create modest, often humorous works that transcend artworld trends.

The exhibition will include approximately thirty of Friedmanís sculptures, works on paper, and other pieces, including new works made especially for this show, in the MCA's Turner, Cohen, and fourth-floor lobby galleries. The MCA is the first venue for the national tour of this exhibition, which was organized by the Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art, Winston-Salem, North Carolina.
