Chicago-based artist Juan Angel Chavez works with salvaged wood and other discarded materials to create dynamic, sculptural assemblages that celebrate theChavez-RimaW-(1).jpg intrinsic value of ordinary, and seemingly banal, objects. The tears, stains, abrasions and other imperfections that mar the surface of the material he collects provide a lasting record of an object’s complex history. 

For the Figge, Chavez will construct a site-specific installation composed of material gathered in the Quad Cities. Entitled No Shoes, No Shirt, No Service, the installation will take the form of a web-like structure reminiscent of the temporary shelters that animals (and humans) construct for their survival. In his use of refuse and other found objects, Chavez seeks to draw attention to socially deviant behavior and other “unwanted” activities.

Born in La Junta, Chihuahua, Mexico, Chavez immigrated to the United States when he was thirteen. He attended The School of the Art Institute of Chicago's Early College Program and continued his studies at The School, where he currently holds a faculty position in the sculpture department. He has exhibited in Chicago at the Museum of Contemporary Art, The Mexican Fine Art Center Museum, and the Hyde Park Art Center. Chavez has been the recipient of numerous awards including the Richard H. Driehaus Foundation award, the Louis Comfort Tiffany award, Artadia Individual artist award and 3Arts award.Chavez2W.jpg
