Prak-sis Ga­lerie

Harper's Bazaar Art (Indonesia) - - Exhibition Highlight - Mi­hyun Yu

En­deav­our­ing to cre­ate some­thing out of noth­ing—or in their words “even in times of eco­nomic cri­sis, life can blos­som, a cul­ture can grow, and most of all, hope need not die”—prak-sis Gallery fur­ther re­al­ize that de­sire by turn­ing va­cant spa­ces or aban­doned build­ing into art gal­leries. The Chicago-based gallery was founded by Mi-yeon Kwon in 2009 to em­pha­size on art ca­reer devel­op­ment and art ed­u­ca­tion. Since then Prak-sis has worked with small busi­nesses and neigh­bour­hood sup­port or­ga­ni­za­tions for mu­tual art-re­lated ben­e­fits, col­lab­o­rat­ing with es­tab­lished and up-and-com­ing artists, es­pe­cially with their Geon-art Case In­ter­na­tional (GACI) Project that fo­cuses on solo projects and rep­re­sents artists’ art­works in a smaller scale for art lovers and col­lec­tors. Rec­og­niz­ing the power of tech­nol­ogy, Prak-sis also aims to pro­mote art in new me­dia and will con­cen­trate on on­line projects as well. Their list of tal­ented artists in­cludes Ro­man Serra, Dar­ryl Schiff, Diane Pon­der, Lynn Basa, Chang­han Kim, Joshua Sel­man, and Jes­sica Hig­gins.
