思考回路 • Shikoukairo III
April 16 - May 31, 2021
at the
Zhou B Art Center
1029 W 35th St, Chicago IL  / 2nd floor


 Asian Improv aRts Midwest (AIRMW) presents 思考回路 • Shikoukairo III: Patterns of Thought as a continuation of AIRMW’s efforts to reframe the conversation around Asian & Asian-American cultural diegesis in the arts. A third iteration of the 思考回路• Shikoukairo exhibition, the show features artists who are intuitively influenced by their Asian diasporic background and experiences, yet whose practices diverge from didactic and diegetic inquiries of cultural identity. This year the project has expanded to feature an international roster of Chicago-connected artists, whose work emphasizes process and material-based methodologies and explorations. 思考回路 • Shikoukairo III considers notions of legibility and visibility through the photographic, cinematic, abstracted, textural, refracted, reflective, tactile and sonic image.
