Dan Friedman: Stay Radical
September 2, 2023 - February 4, 2024
Art Institute of Chicago:
111 S Michigan Ave,
Chicago, IL 60603

Charting his mid-career transformation from graphic designer to a multimedia creator who defies categorization, Dan Friedman’s first museum retrospective proves his unbound creativity. His unconventional style—often incorporating objects found in New York—led to collaborations with some of the city’s most prominent artists, especially pillars of the East Village like Jean-Michel Basquiat and Keith Haring. This experience allowed him to explore the full range of his creativity and begin making wild assemblages and customized furniture pieces that explored themes ranging from daydreams to ecological disasters.
