WILLIAM CONGER
This / That (Gallery 1)

back to current exhibition

Bruno David Gallery is please to present This/That by William Conger. This is the artist's first solo exhibition with the gallery.

William Conger continues his lifelong investigation of formal non-representational abstraction (This) nuanced by the suggestion of illusionism to evoke an ambiguous welter of private and cultural memories, allusions, feelings, places and events (That). In conjunction with the exhibition, Bruno David Gallery Publications will publish a catalogue of the artists work with an exhibition history and bibliography.

Conger is a Chicago-based artist whose work has been exhibited extensively in museums since 1958. Museum collections include Art Institute of Chicago, Chicago, IL; Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, IL; Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum, Michigan State University, East lansing, MI; Mary & Leigh Block Museum, Northwestern University, Evanston, IL; Wichita Art Museum, Wichita, KS; University of New Mexico Art Museum, Jonson Collection, Albuquerque, NM; DePaul University Art Museum, Chicago, IL; Georgia Museum of Art, Athens, The Unisersity of Gergia, GA; Tarble Museum, Eastern Illinois University, Charleston IL; Madsion Museum of Contemporary Art, Madison, WI; Loyola University Art Museum, Chicago, IL. He is professor emeritus of art and theory and practice at Northwestern University.

Conger earned a B.F.A. from the University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, MW in 1960 and a M.F.A. from University of Chicago in 1966.
