From the baroque opulence of the visionary artist Matthew Barney to the ravaged realism of Zhuang Hui’s installation, Chasan County; here bodies, time and space become material. These works invite the audience to enter a world of visual puns and principles helping to consider theories through their confronting positions.
The 24 artistic statements in the exhibition challenge the Eurocentric historicizing of Beauty. Their robust questioning and invention offer new perceptual possibilities of the visual. These charged emotive works in the exhibition featuring artists from sixteen countries allows the viewer to enter the emerging dialogue About Beauty.
