Hosted at Chicago’s Western Exhibitions, Chimera is a presentation of the architectural photomontages by Chicago-based architect Marshall Brown. Using a technique Brown refers to as “stealth collage,” images of buildings are cut and pasted into diverse, incompatible alignments. The specific pieces on display were created in 2014 as a set of 100 14- by 17-inch compositions. Chimera is the second solo show for Marshall Brown at Western Exhibitions. Marshall Brown is a practicing architect and an associate professor at the Illinois Institute of Technology College of Architecture. His practice, Marshall Brown Projects, has work currently on exhibit as part of the United States Pavilion at the 15th Venice Architecture Biennale.
Chimera: The Work of Marshall Brown was on show at Western Exhibitions, 845 West Washington Boulevard, 2nd Floor, Chicago, IL, through June 25.
