artists bios and more
SPACE will explore the complex contemporary landscape–social,
political, physical, and cultural–and the arts, ideas and artists
that play a major role in shaping public understanding of the powerful
dynamics of those spaces.
Historically, land was the great frontier and artists had a major role
in shaping public understanding of those spaces. Now the frontiers of
the past have become the “contested spaces” of the present.
These new frontiers are no longer just physical space, but constantly
assume new morphologies–local, national, transnational, geopolitical,
social, cultural, physical, virtual. At this point in time the planet
has been entirely mapped and Googled and has become a globalized space
that conveys the fears and hopes of humankind. Cosmic space is being
unraveled and mapped and we are closing all the distances that seemed,
at one point, unimaginably vast. When distance has been abolished and
time and space have shrunk, can art still explore new territory? Yes,
it is the territory of “contested space” in which transformation
and re-imagining begins and the arts play a central role. More>
