CHF: Art by Telephone and Other Adventures in Conceptualism


In 1969, the brand-new Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago mounted a landmark exhibition—Art by Telephone—that took its title literally. Artists phoned in their works of art, which were then created on-site to their specifications. Iain Baxter& was one of the participating artists then, and he returns to Chicago this fall for his retrospective at the MCA. In a conversation with art historian Hannah Feldman, Baxter& recalls not only Art by Telephone but also additional milestones in conceptualism. Recorded Sat, Nov 5, 1-2 pm.
