Chinese-born video artist Yuge Zhou is renowned for exploring urban spaces and contemporary life through art. Now associated with the New Museum’s tech incubator NEW INC, Zhou’s work has earned global recognition, including ArtPrize 2021’s Juried Award and Honorary Mention at the 2020 Prix Ars Electronica.
Initially debuting at Art on the Mart, Zhou’s series Love Letters fascinated audiences with a nightly public art projection onto the facade of the Merchandise Mart. As a result, two new episodes, Summer and Winter, will be exhibited in the LOVE: Still Not The Lesser exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Photography. Throughout the series, Zhou explores national and personal identity, place, connection, and longing through observational vantage points, collage, and choreography.
The exhibition will run from the 17th of August until the 22nd of December, 2023.
