Opening of the Exhibition Doug Argue: Chicken Paintings

October 13, 2013
Doug Argue: Chicken Paintings exhibition opens at Eagle Gallery of the Cafesjian Center for the Arts on October 13, 2013, at 10:00. The exhibition presents four monumental works by the renowned contemporary American artist Doug Argue, including his famous Untitled chicken painting.

Doug Argue explores “infinity in finite space” creating grandiose scale works, where ordinary objects are monumentalized and reconceptualized within the vortex of contemporary society.

The Untitled chicken painting and the three chicken portraits from the Gerard L. Cafesjian Collection comprise one of the highlights in the artist’s creative spectrum. The works impress with their overwhelming scale and meticulous execution conveying the multilayered creative vision of the artist.

Doug Argue was born in 1962 in Saint Paul, Minnesota. His works are included in numerous public collections, including the Walker Art Center, the Minnesota Museum of American Art, the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, and the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation. In 2009, he was awarded with the Artist of the Year by the London Creative Competition. Argue has been the recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship, the Prix De Rome, a Bush Foundation Fellowship, and a Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant. Doug Argue currently resides in New York City.  

The exhibition Doug Argue: Chicken Paintings will be free of charge on October 13 and will last till December 29, 2013.
