Each month, hear first-hand from the Chicago-based artists featured in the MCA's UBS 12 X 12: New Artists/New Works exhibition series and gain insight into the ideas and process that led to the work on view.

Dan Gunn's abstract objects simultaneously inhabit the realms of painting and sculpture. In his three-dimensional compositions and installations, he explores the perceptual phenomena of reflective materials like glitter, tinsel, chair caning, holographic paper, and disco-era patterned fabrics, along with other found objects.
