A CITY TO WEAR 2.0 Call for Artists

Seeking artists for A CITY TO WEAR 2.0, an exhibition at Research House for Asian Art, Chicago, running from late September to late October 2018.



A CITY TO WEAR 2.0 seeks to find paintings beyond “painting”. It aims to examine the argument that the painting now is to act on painting, rather than using it to represent contents and narratives. Whether to use painting as a medium, or as a context for experience, the paintings beyond painting demonstrate that painting nowadays is not the resurgence of the tradition anymore, but a constantly changing definition that push the boundaries and bring in new possibilities. With the experience of the place and time, what kind of new possibilities did artists create in paintings nowadays?
