The Mega Mall Exhibition series will feature a revolving display of work culled from a multitude of Chicago-based artists. The organizer’s intent is to expose Chicago to the broad expanse of relevant contemporary work produced here.
Organizing a show in a place designed explicitly for non-luxury commerce runs contrary to the model used by current art fairs, where access is denied to those without status or privilege. A tattoo artist in the Mega Mall becomes equivalent to a museum/gallery director, and personal, real world, life-applicable experiences become as relevant as the display and/or sale of an art object.
