Chicago Works: Assaf Evron


The work of Chicago artist Assaf Evron dwells at the interstice of architecture, decoration, place, and image. A former photojournalist, the artist uses a wide variety of media to both upend and connect an even wider variety of references, materials, and geographies. While global in scope, Evron’s practice is rooted in a rigorous investigation of local histories and context. The ‘meander,’ a decorative motif based on the natural curves of rivers and streams, wends its way through the artist’s work, which follows the design as it moves from the sedimentation lines on the face of Mount Sodom in Israel, to the ornamental facades of iconic buildings such as the Monadnock in Chicago, to Rabin Square in Tel Aviv. In this exhibition, Evron traces how different forms of decorative design meander and meet as images across the world, accruing new cultural significance in each collision.
