As part of their mid-career survey Sic Transit Gloria Mundi: Industry of the Ordinary 2003-2013, at the Chicago Cultural Center, Industry of the Ordinary solicited a number of Chicago-based artists to make their portrait, in a wide variety of media. IOTO’s interest was in creating a collective work that reveals the artists behind the portraits, reflects on the place of the portrait in contemporary art practice and considers the motivations behind the enduring urge to fashion a likeness.
