Chicago-based artist Daniel Baird’s work addresses ideas endemic to the Western cultural
milieu, often questioning notions of technological progress by including more primitive or child-like interventions into the very construction of his sculptures and mixed-media installations.
Baird earned his MFA from the University of Illinois, Chicago, in 2011, and his BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2008. In recent years he has had solo exhibitions at such venues as Andrew Rafacz Gallery, Chicago; Roots and Culture, Chicago; Appendix Project Space, Portland, OR; Jan Van Eyck Academie, Maastricht, the Netherlands; and Hungryman Gallery, Chicago. His work has also been included in numerous group exhibitions, including shows at the Harlan Levey Projects, Brussels; American Medium, New York; Rockford Art Museum, Rockford, IL; the Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts, New York; Koh-iNoor, Copenhagen; LVL3, Chicago; Land and Sea, Oakland; and Leeds University College of Art. He is represented by Patron Gallery, Chicago.
