Over the past few years Ray and Evan Hughes have travelled to Chicago and discovered an exciting new group of artists centred around the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC). Graduating from this institution between the early 1980s and the mid 2000s, and working in a number of styles and materials, the work of the seven artists in Now Chicago are linked by an exploration of material and form, resulting in fresh, exciting works infused with youth and vitality.
