Theaster Gates: How to Sell Hardware is the artist’s latest installation in Chicago and third solo exhibition at Gray. How to Sell Hardware tells the story of Theaster Gates’s ongoing engagement with a family-owned True Value hardware store formerly located on Chicago’s South Side.
What results from urban planning, social practice, and a hunger for change? Theaster Gates at Richard Gray may be it. The latest exhibition from the Chicago based artist emphasised the intersection of fine art and social progression.
