Part of the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis’ fall/winter exhibition, “Great Rivers Biennial” is a biannual collaborative initiative between the museum and the Gateway Foundation designed to foster artistic talent in the greater St. Louis metro area.

 

More than 105 applicants vied for a spot in this year’s “Great Rivers Biennial,” and the three winners – Yowshien Kuo, Yvonne Osei and Jon Young – each received $20,000 in unrestricted prize money and a place in the main gallery. Although “Great Rivers Biennial 2022” didn’t have a theme, all three of the artists gravitated toward questions of national and personal identity.

 

In the exhibition, which runs through Feb. 12, 2023, the artists collectively show multi-component sculptures, large-scale paintings and an immersive installation featuring video and photography.
