Paris London Hong Kong
Paris London Hong Kong is an evolving experimental site for international emerging and established artists. Since its inception, the gallery has grown into an important platform in Chicago for exhibitions that feature both a diverse array of artists and the varied interests of its curators. To date, PLHK has presented solid painting exhibitions, surprising site-specific installations of sculpture and objects, shows of photography and functional objects, projects that question print media and graphic production, a bookshop, and rare photos by Irving and Paula Klaw of pin-up/bondage/fetish star Bettie Page. PLHK is a space for work that continually tests the boundaries of contemporary art and does so with a healthy dose of spirit and enthusiasm. The space is modest, but the work is expansive and always challenging.
All of Paris London Hong Kong’s featured artists continue to make their mark at significant venues and through important projects throughout the world. Since her 2015 installation at PLHK, Alice Tippit opened her first solo show in New York at Nicelle Beauchene Gallery where she is now represented. The show garnered an Artforum review. Lauren Taylor showed at PLHK in January and just closed her first solo exhibition at Andrew Rafacz Gallery in Chicago. After his 2015 show Wyatt Grant completed a major site-specific installation at the Thompson Hotel in Chicago.
Opening receptions take place on the first night of the exhibition from 5-8pm
