Navigation & Trajectory
10:00am-6:00pm, October 24 — December 13, 2015/ admission free
The creation of art, which originates within an artist and is profoundly linked to human existence, can be interpreted as humanity’s act to leave its mark on the world. Art may emerge from the union of experiences and lengthy periods of trial and error, or it may spring from an innovative series of activities as a movement. But regardless of its intended purpose, art cannot be dogmatized as an isolated end product. Rather, similar to humanity’s continually changing existence, the creative process is just that: an ongoing process in which the thought and action that go into art are inextricably linked to any subsequent possibilities.
Under the title of Navigation & Trajectory, we invite artists who attempt to unite past time and space with the present to build value for the future. We will think about lasting forms of expression by way of expression.
