Over the course of a half-century, Ray Yoshida (1930–2009, SAIC class of 1953) was one of the most vital American artistic figures to emerge from the Midwest. His singular importance is due both to his artwork and his position as an educator and colleague at SAIC. Curated by SAIC faculty member John Corbett and Jim Dempsey, this exhibition will be the first to examine Yoshida’s oeuvre and its relation to his life at SAIC, while placing it historically at the crucial juncture of mid-century Chicago that saw a transition from an expressionist orientation to a pop idiom.

The core of the exhibition is a retrospective of Yoshida’s art featuring works from the artist’s estate and rarely seen pieces culled from a range of private and institutional collections. Parallel to the retrospective, additional works by colleagues and students consider Yoshida’s work in relation to formative influences, influences from contemporary colleagues, and the open dialogue between Yoshida and his students.

For more information about the concurrent presentation of Yoshida’s work at the Art Institute of Chicago’s Modern Wing from Nov. 12, 2010 through May 8, 2011, please visit
