Description: 
Jan Tichy is a contemporary artist and educator who works with video, sculpture, architecture, and photography.  Born in Prague in 1974, Tichy studied in Israel before moving to Chicago in 2007, 
where he earned his MFA from the School of the Art Institute and where he now teaches.  Tichy has had solo exhibitions at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; Tel Aviv Museum of Art, the 
Herzliya Museum of Contemporary Art; Richard Gray Gallery, Chicago; and CCA Tel Aviv. Over the past years his work has been included in exhibitions in Barcelona, Basel, Berlin, Frankfurt, Helsinki,

demolition.
