… and the pursuit of…

@ The Research House for Asian Art; Co-Prosperity Chicago

3217 -19 S Morgan St, Chicago, IL 60608

Opening Friday, September 30th, from 6PM - 9PM

On view through Wednesday, October 19th

In collaboration with Co-prosperity Sphere’s “The Pause Apothecary,” “…and the pursuit of -” presents an intersectional and interdisciplinary exploration of menopause and the female vision. This exhibition brings together artists whose practices juxtapose the bucolics of form and creation with social critique of the valuation of women through public negotiation and the historic dominion of fertility, and works that explore the cavernous mystique of MOTHER. We are interested to exhibiting works that invite contemplation and action towards the following F’s: Fecundity & Fertility, Family & Fortune, Form & Felicity, Freedom & Futurism.

As part of The Research House for Asian Art (RHAA)’s ongoing effort to expand the realm of the Asian cultural critique and investigation, this exhibition will also feature a broadcasted podcast/radio series that will bring together artists, scholars, and activists in dialogue about the state of feminism in China and diasporic communities. We aim to engage and collaborate in intergenerational and multicultural dialogue with the hope of introducing and normalizing conversations about feminism and activism in Chicago’s Asian community, the Sinosphere, and beyond.
