“Playing with Chess brings together the work of 23 artists to continue the tradition begun in the 1944 show, The Imaginary Chess, in NYC, organized by Marcel Duchamp, Max Ernst, and more. In homage to this tradition Texas Tech University Associate Professor in the School of Art, Future Atkins, has organized this exhibition to explore and celebrate artists’ take on the classic game. The work consists of glass, clay, collage, assemblage, painting and metal pieces. The styles range from traditional to conceptual, historical to contemporary, mythical to practical.”
