Form Fit: Alberto Aguilar

Alberto Aguilar wrote this biography but will be speaking in third person. For no specific reason he has omitted the word art from this short paragraph but has made one exception. Alberto is a Chicago based artist and teaches at Harold Washington College. He is coordinator of Pedestrian Project a program dedicated to making art more accessible and available to all. Currently he is artist in residence at the Art Institute of Chicago. Aguilar's creative practice often incorporates whatever materials are at hand as well as exchanges with his family, other artists, and people he encounters. His work bridges media from painting and sculpture to video, installation, performance, and sound, and has been exhibited at Chicago’s Museum of Contemporary Art the Queens Museum, Crystal Bridges Museum, the Nelson-Atkins Museum and the Minneapolis Institute of Art.

Form Fit is a lecture series organized by University of Illinois at Chicago MFA graduates in which local artists, curators, and other contemporary art practitioners present on their work. This series is free and open to the public.
