Since its inception in 2004 the Zhou B Art Center has become an institution for Bridgeport and for Chicago. It is a venue for exhibitions and concerts of the most diverse nature and established itself as an important cultural center on the city's South Side. The center currently houses 12 artist studios and has hosted over 50 exhibitions, festivals and installations.
Director Oskar Friedl has selected works from every current resident as well as works from past shows that have been installed at the Zhou B Art Center. "The exhibition is a direct reflection of the diversity of artists that have worked here and the wide variety of events that we were able to accommodate in the galleries."
The Zhou Brothers started the Zhou B Art Center 2004 together with their long time curator, Oskar Friedl. Having come from China in 1987, the Zhou Brothers have established themselves as the leading artists in Chicago and realized a life long dream to start a "Creation Center". "We have been fortunate enough to be able to give back to the community and start a new exciting movement with the Zhou B Art Center," ShanZuo Zhou says. "My brother and I have been inspired by so many good art spaces around the world that we wanted to provide a platform for Chicago art as well as contribute to the richness of the cultural landscape of this great city," adds DaHuang Zhou. The Zhou B Art Center has become a bridge point for Asian art in America but has attracted artists and shows from almost every part of the world.
This 5 year survey is a document of the past as well as an outlook into the future. Started by artists and following the concept of the 'Kunsthalle,' a contemporary art space serving the immediate community, the Zhou B Art Center now is an intricate part of the Chicago art scene. In the coming year the Zhou B Art Center plans to add an art school to this unique development and foster new and young talent from the Chicagoland area.
