For the past two decades, Minnesota–based artist and musician Chris Larson has developed a multimedia practice rooted in sculpture. His work incorporates film, video, photography, drawing and painting. Often he integrates these elements into sculptural installations that reference architecture—from iconic buildings by architects such as Marcel Breuer to ordinary rural cabins to imaginary, sometimes illogical structures—while building a unique narrative structure. Larson has most recently had a solo exhibition at the Katonah Museum of Art in Katonah, NY, The Boiler (Pierogi) in Brooklyn, NY, his work was included in the 2014 Whitney Biennial, and he has an upcoming solo exhibition at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, MN. He is a professor of art and the Director of Undergraduate Studies at the University of Minnesota. Larson is the publisher of InReview, a quarterly print publication presenting critical responses to art in the Twin Cities.
