Mack Baker 

Collapse 4 (Contraction), 2022




Mack Baker is a transdisciplinary artist in the Ceramics MFA program at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, set to graduate in 2023. Originally from New England, Baker has a background in craft studio pottery and film photography. They have developed an installation based practice which spans across drawing, textiles, ceramics, and photography. Baker likes making work about the tender folds and imperfections of the body and how these repeating forms connect us. Conceptually, their work is about the queer experience, in all of its vibrancy and communal care. In the summer of 2022, they received the Seebacher Award through the Austrian American Foundation to attend the Summer Academie at the Festung Hohensalzburg. Their ceramic fountain was also included in a group show SPACORE, which was activated for the Midway Art Fair in September 2022. Most recently their solo show (not) hiding, was on view in SAIC’s gallery 1922.
