Mike Cloud and Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts

Evolving a unique painterly language that often comprises a mash-up of cutout photographs, thick paint, and handmade patchwork, Brooklyn-based Mike Cloud’s work challenges notions of abstraction in art. For this exhibition, Cloud will create large-scale, three-dimensional painted collages, hand-stitched paper quilts, and ceramic vessels, using familiar imagery to explore semiotics and cultural meaning. “Mike Cloud: The Myth of Education” will present a suite of completely new works for his first solo exhibition in his hometown at the Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts’ gallery at the University of Chicago. The exhibition will be on view from January 19 – March 11, 2018.
