Ed Paschke: Mixed Media

Ed Paschke Art Center

5415 West Higgins Avenue, Chicago, Illinois 60630

Ed Paschke, Vosotros, 1983. Oil on canvas, 42 x 80 inches.

Ed Paschke is world renowned as a painter of outstanding wit and impact. His exploration of the social, cultural and political dimensions of identity challenge traditional standards of beauty and collapse established hierarchies of taste and value.

Paschke skillfully translated his ideas across two and three dimensions in a variety of media. Traversing the full arc of his forty year career, this exhibition features drawings, paintings, sculptures, and prints, including lithographs and silkscreens pulled at over half a dozen workshops and presses. Works in the exhibition were selected by Paschke’s daughter, Sharon, and drawn exclusively from her private collection. Ed Paschke Art Center’s permanent display of the artist’s PHSColograms, public art commission, and studio contextualize his creative methods and working process.
