Fred Wilson (American, born 1954) is renowned for his interdisciplinary practice that challenges assumptions of history, culture, race, and conventions of display. By reframing objects and cultural symbols, he alters traditional interpretations, encouraging viewers to reconsider social and historical narratives.

Presented by the Society for Contemporary Art with the School of the Art Institute of Chicago’s Visiting Artists Program
