The Renaissance Society is excited to present a solo exhibition, parrottree—building for bigger than real, by Berlin-based artist Nora Schultz on view January 12 through February 23, 2014. Schultz will produce all new works for this exhibition.

Schultz produces sculptural installations that double as analog printing studios. Her primary materials are discarded objects scavenged from around her studio and the site of exhibition, often in the form of metal bars and sheets, grates, tubes, plastics, etc. Schultz repurposes this refuse into sculptural objects, as well as contact printing devices, stencils and even simple rotary presses with which she prints (often as public performance) abstractions scaled from the intimate to the monumental, exhibited individually or in accumulating heaps. Deeply engaged with material and process, Schultz’s installations are themselves, at times, engines of ongoing artistic creation.

This is Schultz’s first solo museum exhibition in the United States, as well as the first show curated at The Renaissance Society by new Chief Curator and Executive Director Solveig Øvstebø.  

Founded in 1915, the Renaissance Society is a non-collecting museum of contemporary art committed to supporting artists through the commissioning of new work, solo and thematic exhibitions, publications, and interdisciplinary education programs. All programs are admission-free and open to the public.

The Renaissance Society is located on the campus of the University of Chicago, in Cobb Hall, on the fourth floor. It is open Tuesday to Friday from 10am to 5pm, and Saturday and Sunday from noon to 5pm. Admission is free. Visit www.renaissancesociety.org to learn more about the exhibitions and events.
