Sotheby’s Institute of Art is honored to present Destiny vs. Will: Navigating the Maze of Modern Existence, an exhibition bringing together a diverse range of works by twelve artists: Maya Brodsky, Chufeng Fang, Dr. Goody, Ben Gould, Emma Howard, Fei Li, Wenju Lu, Madalena Negrone, Logan Sprangers, Jiannan Wu, and Milan Zou.

Destiny vs. Will is an invitation to pause, reflect, and engage deeply with the questions and challenges posed by our current era and life in general. This timely exhibition will resonate across cultural and generational divides, addressing the pressing question of agency versus predetermination in a moment of unprecedented choices and societal pressures. Additionally, in an age of rapid technological advancement and change, where the future seems increasingly uncertain, exploring the concepts of destiny and free will through art can provide a meaningful and thought-provoking experience for audiences seeking to make sense of their place in the world.

The exhibition will run from April 25 to May 3 with an opening reception on April 25 at 6:30 pm.
