Latitude Gallery is pleased to present It’s Time to Reduce the Backlog, a group exhibition showcasing the recent works by thirty emerging artists from the US and abroad.
The exhibition consists of two parts: a physical viewing space at 174 Roebling Street, Brooklyn, and an online portion accessible through here
The idea for this exhibition originated from Latitude’s wish to provide a platform for those who had continued to work and create art in an unusual and trying time. The works exhibited are selected from an open call which received more than a hundred submissions. The selection reflected the curatorial team’s aim to survey the landscape of contemporary art made by young, emerging artists, whose practices take on a wide range of media, including painting, drawing, sculpture, installation, video, performance and textiles.
Not only conversant in a multitude of artistic vocabularies, the artists presented are also well immersed in a variety of cultural influences. The majority of artists in the show received their art education partially or entirely in the US while also having a cultural background in Asian countries. As such, the works selected draw on both Western and Eastern artistic practices and philosophical traditions, and comment on issues both local and transnational.
Building on an expansive network of diasporic Asian artists, this exhibition, as well as Latitude Gallery as a project, operates at the intersection of various cultural influences.
The recent events in America and on the global stage prompted a renewed feeling of importance in negotiating a sense of identity, which might not necessarily be the subject of the works exhibited, but is reflected in their fluid aesthetic sensibilities and hybrid conceptual strategies.
Founded in this special year of 2020, LATITUDE Gallery supports and represents young contemporary artists from not only china, asian and but all around the world, featuring avant-garde exhibitions and performances in a variety of media. Through diverse programs such as open calls, exhibitions, screenings, interviews, talks, art salons, workshops, and online presentations, we are dedicated to fostering a creative community, stimulating intellectual discussions, and engaging a wide range of audiences. As an art boutique and online platform, we provide far-reaching opportunities for artists and designers to explore new ways of selling and promoting their works.
