Within You Without You


Within You Without You
Curated By: Michelle Loh

April 9 - May 8, 2011
Artist Panel Discussion: April 16 @ 4pm
Moderator: Professor John Rajchman, Columbia University

The NARS (New York Art Residency & Studio) Foundation is pleased to present a group exhibition of New York-based Asian artists, featuring a site-specific installation and drawings by Haeri Yoo; paintings by Jana Benitez and Zhang Yu; an oil painting installation by Taku Saito; and a video by Cao Yi.

"The response of one organism to the gestures of another in any given social act is the meaning of that gesture" (George Herbert Mead). Each of the works in WITHIN YOU WITHOUT YOU is a kind of self-portrait that investigates the essential connection between the self and society; the dynamic is played out and transformed in the connection of each work to the others and to the exhibition as a whole.

About the Curator:
Michelle Loh is a New York-based art consultant who specializes in organizing art fairs and group exhibitions. Loh advises individual and institutional collectors about contemporary Asian art. Her most recent projects include FOCUS SHANGHAI: Two Contemporary Chinese video Artists at Thomas Erben Gallery, and Trans-Realism: Contemporary Art from China at Christie's.
