CHICAGO – The diverse work of Pae White engages art, architecture, and design to heighten the experience of site and context. Growing up in the “modernist mecca” of Southern California in the late 1960s and 1970s, White developed a visual vocabulary drawn from a variety of influences that range from consumer culture to “high” art—Eames furniture, Vera Neumann scarves, and Milton Glaser graphics, among them. On view at the Art Institute of Chicago May 19–September 25.
