Ethan Hayes-Chute at the MIT List

  • MIT List Visual Arts Center 20 Ames Street Cambridge, MA, 02142 United States (map)

Join artist Ethan Hayes-Chute and curator Henriette Huldisch for a conversation about Hayes-Chute’s new exhibition at the List Visual Arts Center, List Projects: Ethan Hayes-Chute, discussing the artist’s approach to building and filling space, and his striking a tenuous balance between the absurd and the practical.

Ethan Hayes-Chute’s installations, sculptures, drawings, text pieces, and performances explore ideas of self-sufficiency and self-preservation as alternative models for living. He constructs small, near-functional cabins and partial interiors out of entirely salvaged materials; the structures variously make reference to landscapes on the margin, life off the grid, ecology, and waste. Many of Hayes-Chutes’s sculptures and installations use technology to solve everyday problems. He programs nearly obsolete computers for practical applications, lending retro-futuristic undertones to his rustic assemblages.

Ethan Hayes-Chute (b.1982, Freeport, Maine) lives and works in Berlin.
