YOUNG FRIENDS EXHIBITION: PERFORMING THE SHADOW: ART OF THE PAST AND VISION OF THE FUTURE

Art by definition is everlasting. Artists express time dramatically in every medium. While these works display acts and expressions of emotion, the exhibition as a whole is a performance of art. From a dramatic perspective, the locus of an exhibition is sanctioned in the viewer’s taste and memory, but in its temporality, it juxtaposes art’s transitory nature against the timelessness of artistic expression.

 Art exhibitions of today and yesterday are mechanisms for processing art history. They function not only as forecasts to understand creative expression but also as a performance of the past. It is this kind of storytelling that equates to understanding our time and place, and therefore something to be treasured and appreciated by all.
