Press Release for NONONCHALANT:

Alan Koppel Gallery is thrilled to welcome ten Chicago contemporary artists in our upcoming exhibition NONONCHALANT, opening Friday, September 21, 2018.

NONONCHALANT presents a study of contemporary abstract art in Chicago. The artists represented in the exhibition have committed extraordinary efforts in exploring new means of abstraction, whether in the alteration of the chemical composition of the paint used, or the shredding and re-weaving of the canvas, or the irreverent application of materials. Battling the common misconception that abstract art is void of content, these ten artists build their work on purposeful actions, historical context, and shocking experimentation. NONONCHALANT argues the case for high art and the essential sensitivity of dedicated viewers to dig deep in their exploration of the meaning of these artworks. 


The ten artists included in the exhibition all live, work and teach in the Chicago area.
