Roadside Picnic Exhibit – Owen Gallery
February 16 - April 30
Owen Gallery, Art Cottage
Now through April 30, 2019
Compared to the practices of Chinese artists represented in much of the current Western art scene, these artists–educated in the U.S., create works that defy the ‘exoticization’ of their Chinese-ness. Their use of diverse art media is fussed with personal, idiosyncratic, theoretical, formal, satirical, poetic, and ineffable contents.
As the name implies, Roadside Picnic is the food meant to be eaten on an excursion. Where does this road lead within the New York art world? To a maturity of style and content back in China? Or toward becoming voices of contemporary discourse? Roadside Picnic is a celebration of the state of flux as our global world rattles anxiously and attentively.
