Member Tour of Julia Fish: bound by spectrum

Reception & Tour

For three decades, Julia Fish (American, born 1950) has used her house and its vernacular architecture—a Chicago storefront designed by Theodore Steuben in 1922—as the basis for a system of mapping color, form, and light in paintings and works on paper. Julia Fish: bound by spectrum presents a survey of the last decade (2009–19) of Fish’s paintings and works on paper while providing new scholarship around her ongoing project that brings together the disciplines of painting, drawing, and architecture. Members enjoy a reception before a gallery conversation with the artist and Julie Rodrigues Widholm, director and chief curator of the DePaul Art Museum.
