Qingjun Huang: Housed/Unhoused

Preston Jackson Gallery


Nov 04 2022

Nov 4 – Dec 17, 2022

Chinese artists Qingjun Huang and his wife Liu Yang recently emigrated to USA to live in Peoria. While in China, Qingjun convinced people to display all of their belongings in front of their homes to be photographed. He also created a series with unhoused people making the same request. A selection of both series will be placed side by side in the gallery as in a diptych format. All kinds of conclusions can be made from this documentation.

Besides regular business hours: Tuesday-Saturday 11-5:00, we are open late until 9:00pm during events (First Friday, Live at the Five Spot) and at the combined art reception on Saturday, November 19, 6:30-8:30pm. The Contemporary Art Center is located at 305 SW Water Street, Peoria, IL 61602. Call or text 309-674-6822 or contact us with questions for more information.
