2022 Pougialis Fine Art Award Exhibition: Nicole Leung and CJ Shaw

June 16–September 15, 2022

2022 Pougialis Fine Art Award Exhibition features the work of 2021 Pougialis Award winners Nicole Leung and CJ Shaw. This exhibition explores the relinquishing and preservation of the artists’ former selves in relation to time. Through painting, performance, and sculpture Leung and Shaw use visual language to map out their own non-linear timelines. Time is a relationship of motions relative to one motion, like a clock. It is only when something moves, that what used to exist and is going to exist can be perceived.

The Pougialis Fine Art award is a yearly competition, sponsored by the Art & Art History Department, that offers promising fine art students at Columbia College Chicago an opportunity to study as an apprentice with an established artist of national and international standing for one semester, a cash award, and a two-person exhibition.
