A group exhibition curated by Master of Art Business candidates Lara Arslanian and Chloe Smith.
Imagine is a group exhibition showcasing a variety of themes and methods explored by a select number of NY-based artists tackling the complexity of warfare. Whilst some artists use propagandist media and video as sourced material for their work, others turn to in-depth research, historiography, and textiles from which they aim to humanize the narrative. The result is an exhibition that explores not only artistic practices in response to war, but subtly pushes for wider cultural contemplation into the meaning of, and responses to, violence.
The exhibition title Imagine was taken from Liselot van der Heijden’s video piece of the same name. Imagine, usually hopeful and idealistic in nature, is here in direct contrast to the realities of violence and war represented by the series of works on display. This exhibition aims to guide viewers to imagine alternate realities of the modern era or guide them to face the realities of today.
