OVERHE(a)R(e) took place from December 2014 to January 2015 with an exhibition in Chicago in a pop up gallery space and in London at Carnegie Public Library around the theme of ‘The Simple Good’.
OVERHE(a)R(e) set out to bridge connections between the US and the UK, challenge cultural perceptions and provide a platform for artistic, collaborative exchange on a global stage. After three successful projects, the pilot for a new incarnation of 21 Artists took place in Chicago and London in partnership with Chicago-based organisation, The Simple Good. The project provided opportunities for artists to connect on either side of the Atlantic, broaden their networks and contribute to a global conversation about place, identity and preconceived notions about of what social change looks like in these two cities.
After every participating artist submitted their own “simple good”, artists in each city were paired with one another, creating a piece of art based on their artist pair’s simple good. The finished work was then shown in a touring exhibition at the Carnegie Library in London and Aplomb Gallery in Chicago.
