About The Regional exhibition:

The Regional is the first major multi-museum survey dedicated to contemporary artists living and working in the Midwest, and features works across painting, photography, installation, and performance. The artists come from a variety of backgrounds and are currently based in Detroit, Cincinnati, Chicago, Cleveland, Columbus, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Madison, Minneapolis, and Saint Louis, among other locales throughout the Midwest.

Celebrating the artistic and cultural complexity of the region, the exhibition provides a platform for a generation of artists who are shaping the current and future discourses of contemporary art and culture.
