"Place in a Flat World" installation Three Walls, Chicago

Place in a Flat World challenges the homogenization of globalization through the poetry, mystery, singularity and history found in the artists’ immediate environs.

"Place: area, location, locus, point, position, site, situation, spot, station, venue, whereabouts, city, district, hamlet, locale, locality, neighborhood, quarter, region, town, village,…", source Collins Thesaurus.

We could add “web” to the above, just where are we, when we’re surfing the web? There is much hype about a world that is becoming flatter and more homogenized through globalization; the artists in this exhibition confront homogenation by focusing on the immediacy of their localities.

Exhibiting artists: Sonja Hinrichsen, Rachelle Viader Knowles, Philipp Geist, Brooke White, Jiang Zhi, plus "Inter-Place", a piece created by LiveBox.
