Multiplicity - Art Asia
December 1 – 5, 2010
The New York Art Residency and Studios Foundation is pleased to present Multiplicity for ART ASIA, Miami 2010. As a non-profit arts organization based in New York with a mission to provide a diverse platform for cultural exchange and collaboration among artists and curators, NARS Foundation is excited to present a promising group of emerging and established artists who create work that is fascinating, challenging, and provocative.
The six artists all come from diverse backgrounds and have a wide variety of art practices. From extremely personal instinct based practices to hypercritical self-conscience rational work, the sensibility and artistic expression of each individual artist focuses on and cultivates a unique visual dialogue that range from performance using their own body as their medium and their subject matter to amalgamating visual data from the Internet to create a cultural portrait of the current era.
Some reference art history for their inspiration while others reference their own personal lives to develop art strategies that include complex systems built around their emotions and rational thought. Some explore their own cultural heritage as Asians while others appropriate elements of Asian culture in their work. The multiplicity that is presented by the six artists arouse curiosity while provoking questions about aesthetic theory, utopia, the human condition and the diverse ways in which humans respond to their lives and the lives of others.
