Chicago gets a Miami gift
Tschabalala Self’s painting Thank You (2018) is heading to the Art Institute of Chicago after a collector bought it from Thierry Goldberg gallery at the fair, on the condition that the piece is donated to the institution. The New York-based gallery, in the Positions section, sold its entire installation of new work by the Harlem-born artist. The pieces are from Self’s ongoing Bodega Run series, which is “based on her personal interactions with the metropolitan corner store”, the gallery’s Ron Segev says.
