Secrets of a Trumpet featured a new body of work by Peter Wächtler, commissioned by the Renaissance Society and largely produced during his stay here in Chicago in January 2016. This was the German artist’s first solo museum exhibition in the United States and included sculpture, painting, drawing, and objects. The artist’s fascination with pop culture—“I am attracted to bestsellers, page-turners, tearjerkers, blockbusters,” he has written—is grounded in his attention to the frailty of everyday life.
The poster features a drawing by Wächtler from a series originally published in Starship magazine and now also adorning the Ren’s membership tote.
