12 x 12 Artist Talk: Caleb J. Lyons


Caleb J. Lyons discusses his exhibition of paintings and ceramics during this informal gallery talk. This program is part of the MCA's monthly UBS 12 x 12: New Artists/New Work exhibition series.

Interested in our cultural love affair with the underdog, Lyons’s work explores what could be called an aesthetics of failure in recent abstract art, due to the intentional use of cheap materials and unskilled craft. Lyons is an artist, curator, and educator based in Des Plaines, Illinois.
