Chris McGinnis

Chris McGinnis' series The Productive Machine reflects the artist's continued research on the development of industrial culture throughout the 20th century. His paintings and video installation draw inspiration from Marx's theory of reification, scientific management and examples of collective optimism including Busby Berkely's dance routines and the 1939 New York World’ s Fair.
