Chinati Artist in Residence Exhibition:
Properties of Dust and Smoke, pt. I
On Friday, July 26 from 3:00 to 6:00 PM, Chinati will host an opening for artist in residence Pete Schulte in the John Wesley Gallery on the main museum grounds. The exhibition is open to the public free of charge and everyone is invited to attend.
Schulte’s work is rooted in the daily practice of drawing—primarily using graphite, he builds layers of texture to create balanced, abstract compositions—and also includes the integration of sculpture, site-specific wall drawings, and installations. Of his work, the artist has said: “Whatever form it takes, the work is an earnest attempt to provide a rare moment of pause within a culture that is relentlessly negating the quiet and contemplative.”
A reinstallation of the John Wesley Galley has afforded Schulte the opportunity to use the space to exhibit his work. On view will be an installation of Schulte’s recent works on paper, including a suite of drawings developed in response to the gallery itself: the architecture, atmosphere, and the paintings that are normally housed therein.
