Vertical Gallery presents ‘LAX / ORD II’, curated by Thinkspace. The exhibition will feature 100 artists, and will take place September 7 – 28, 2019. The opening reception is Saturday, September 7th, 6-9pm.
After the phenomenal success of LAX / ORD in September 2016, Vertical and Thinkspace immediately discussed collaborating again. “LAX / ORD II” will have more artists than the first edition, in what will be the largest collection of artists from the New Contemporary Movement under one roof to date in the Windy City.
All the artists have been asked to work within the same space confines of 12×12 inches (30×30 cm) and left to their own devices from there. This collection helps to showcase just how vast and varied the Movement is, from portrait based works to the more fantastical, from landscapes to design based abstract works… ‘LAX / ORD II’ promises to bring your Instagram feed to life and expose you to your new favorite artist.
The exhibition will also include more of a taste of the local Chicago art scene. JC Rivera will have a site-specific mural on the back wall of the gallery to help accent the group show that will be installed on the gallery’s adjacent side walls. On top of that, there will be a new print edition from Kayla Mahaffey that will be available exclusively to those attending the opening reception. Get ready for Thinkspace’s big return!
