Allan McCollum

American, 1944

Allan McCollum has spent over forty years exploring how objects achieve public and personal meaning in a world constituted in mass production, focusing recently on collaborations with small community historical society museums in different parts of the world. In 2005, he designed The Shapes Project, a system to produce "a completely unique shape for every person on the planet, without repeating."

Solo retrospectives of Allan McCollum’s work have been mounted at the Musée d’Art Moderne, Villeneuve d’Ascq, Lille, France (1998); the Sprengel Museum, Hannover, Germany (1995-96); the Serpentine Gallery, London (1990); the Rooseum Center for Contemporary Art, Malmo, Sweden (1990); IVAM Centre del Carme, Valencia, Spain (1990); Stedelijk Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven, The Netherlands (1989), and Portikus, Frankfurt, Germany (1988). He has produced public art projects in both the United States and Europe, and his works are held in over 70 art museum collections around the world.
