What’s next, his hairy leg? We’ve already seen Tasset’s eyeball (remember the giant peeper that landed on State Street in 2010?), but we get such a kick out of this local artist we’ll take whatever he gives us, warts and all. At Kavi Gupta.
11/19–1/29 The terms “conceptual art” and “crowd pleasing” don’t appear side by side—except when it comes to Tony Tasset. In 2010, Chicagoans gaped at the local artist’s gargantuan Eye, a three-story-tall veins-and-all re-creation of his own eyeball installed along State Street. This show gives us a chance to see what Tasset has been up to lately; here’s hoping for work just as enticingly weird. 835 W Washington. kavigupta.com.
