Thispublication documents the exhibition Theaster Gates: Every Square Needs a Circle. The illustrated volume offers a detailed look at the artist’s recent work in multimedia sculpture and installation.
In Every Square Needs a Circle, Theaster Gates (born 1973) offers a rumination on Black economies and empire building, relating to moments from art history and stories of quotidian labor. Produced on the occasion of his first exhibition in his native Chicago in over five years, Every Square Needs a Circle offers a detailed look at the artist’s sculpture, tar paintings, installation and neon work. Gates debuts a multifaceted installation that bridges the work of W.E.B. Du Bois with architectural excerpts from Chicago, placing his interest in the history of objects while expounding on the archives that hold records of Black intelligence.
The book features an introductory poem by Theaster Gates, an essay by Chicago artist Zachary Cahill and 112 color illustrations.
