XX8

xx8

The XX series, now in its eighth edition, is a biennial invitational exhibition series that features five different female artists each year;  every new group of participants being chosen by the previous five.  This “tag” structure should, through its natural progression, offer the Wichita community an expansive range of work, both geographically and conceptually.  There is no set criteria for acceptable medium or genre, as long as the work is unique and exceptional.  The intention of this exhibition is not to focus simply on art made by women (just as a show featuring only male artists isn’t presented as a “men’s show”);  rather, to highlight the work of five extraordinary artists that happen to be women.
