CHICAGO, IL.- The Renaissance Society announced Colour drop, a solo exhibition of new work by Christina Mackie on view April 27 – June 29, 2014. This will be the London-based Canadian artist’s first museum exhibition in the United States. The Renaissance Society will host an opening reception on Sunday, April 27th from 4-7pm featuring an artist talk at 5pm with Mackie and co-curators Solveig Øvstebø and Hamza Walker.

Mackie’s practice is empirical, reliant on observation but prompted by personal reflection and a curiosity for the natural world. Her exhibition at the Renaissance Society will include large-scale sculptures, glass and ceramic works, a series of textured wooden panels, as well as an arrangement of found and natural objects. Central to the exhibition is color, the production and consumption of color, and the association of color and action. Mackie uses color as a meaning to make intention visible, as a conceptual tool and ancient human device.

Christina Mackie (born in Canada, 1956) lives and works in London. Recent solo exhibitions include The Judges III, Nottingham Castle Museum (2013); Painting the Weights, Chisenhale Gallery, London; Kunsthal Charlottenborg, Copenhagen (2012); Us, Victorian College of the Arts, Melbourne (2010); The Judges, Supportico Lopez, Berlin (2010); and Art Now Sculpture Court, Tate Britain (2007).

Founded in 1915, the Renaissance Society is a non-collecting museum of contemporary art committed to supporting artists through the commissioning of new work and the production of exhibitions, publications, and interdisciplinary education programs. All programs are admission-free and open to the public.

The Renaissance Society is located on the campus of the University of Chicago, in Cobb Hall, on the fourth floor. It is open Tuesday to Friday from 10am to 5pm, and Saturday and Sunday from noon to 5pm. Admission is free.
