Best visual art of 2018, from spaces big and small.

“The Floating Museum collective, meanwhile, moved their enormous foam bust of Jean Baptiste Pointe Du Sable onto a spit of overgrown land at the mouth of the Chicago River, advocating for a planned but as-yet-unbuilt commemorative park to Chicago’s first non-indigenous settler, a handsome and educated black man rendered in sickly yellow, waiting incongruously amid the greenery.”

The Roundhouse is a stunner, and the art show is good, too.

“...circle around the Floating Museum’s “Echo Location,” a ring of steel shelves that displays a show within the show. It’s all about reflection: a video by Florian Pugnaire and David Raffini bounces off plexiglass sheets that angle above horizontal monitors; 3-D printed copies of busts from the collection of the DuSable Museum of African American History begin with precision but progress through doubling and tripling; more traditional models of architectural elements of the Roundhouse enshrine the surroundings. The Floating Museum — a collective made up of Schachman, Avery R. Young, Jeremiah Hulsebos-Spofford and Faheem Majeed — proposes an idea of museums for today: adaptive, communal, open, temporary.  It’s a bold gesture to make from inside “Singing Stones,” which marks the first and for now the only public use that has been made of the Roundhouse since the Park District turned it into a storage facility in the 1930s.”
