Andrew Barco

Andrew Barco is an object, installation, and performance maker based in Chicago, Illinois. His work is concerned with the often strange and improbable ways ideas and habits can be transmitted across cultural landscapes and through time. With an MFA in sculpture from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Andrew’s work uses craft and industrial histories, quirky and edgy relational gestures, and philosophical inquiry to create affective and thoughtful encounters. His work has been featured in group exhibitions in Durham, NC; Baltimore, MD; Hartford, CT; Chicago, IL; and New Orleans, LA. Andrew was also part of the ACRE project group show, What We Don’t Know, at Heaven Gallery (2015).

Solo exhibitions include:
Pilot:Drone:Committee:Target at Experimental Sound Studio (2017), Imminence: A Life at Threewalls (2014), Oblique Negotiations at the Fivesevendell Project Space in Boston, MA (2010), Passion for the Real at West Village Historic Lofts in Durham, NC, and Sonnets to Orpheus at Transom Gallery in Durham, NC (2007).
