Matthew Hoffman: Find Your Way
September 16, 2017 - January 8, 2018
Housed in the former Hammond Organ factory, Workshop 4200 has become a hub for Chicago's creators after undergoing a thorough redesign and build-out focusing on community and collaboration. Exclusively for Workshop 4200, Matthew Hoffman has created a new site-specific exhibition of his widely recognized text-based sculptures. Ranging in size from a few inches to "flatbed" size, the works are designed for specific locations on the Workshop 4200 property. The combination of modern art elements, an industrial building from 1941 that has been thoroughly and thoughtfully modernized, and the energy of a community of "creators," showcases the possibilities of reinvigorating a historical property through adaptive reuse.
