Micah Lexier: Circle to Square
John M. Flaxman Library
School of the Art Institute of Chicago
February 24 to April 9, 2014
Circle to Square is an arrangement of items selected from Lexier’s vast archive of found materials, including printed cardboard, street finds, stationary, magic tricks, game pieces, used books, and boxes. This display, made specifically for the three vitrines at the John M. Flaxman Library, includes four books from the library’s collection and two items from the library’s collection of ephemera that has been found inside returned books. All the items in the display were selected for their relationship to the exhibition’s title Circle to Square. Micah Lexier is represented by Birch Libralato, Toronto. Lexier was assisted on this project by Lisa Naftolin.
