Addressing the confluence of economy and power structures throughout history, Chad Person employs an array of mediums in order to illustrate concepts of cultural dominance, consumerism and Manifest Destiny. While his reconfigured dollar-bill collages, aptly titled the "Tax Cut Series," speak to capitalist ideologies inherent to American politics, Person's work oftentimes utilizes aspects of performance, intervention and documentation.
Person (born in 1978, Marinette, WI) received his MFA in Photography from the University of New Mexico (NM). He has had solo exhibitions in Albuquerque, New York, Marfa and Los Angeles, and appears in the public collections of the West Collection (PA), Frederick R. Weisman Foundation, New Mexico Museum of Art, and the University of New Mexico Art Museum (NM).
