Exhibition, The LASALLE Show

As the culmination of the research practice accomplished during the past one and a half years, this exhibition foregrounds the contemplations of the seven artists in the MA Fine Arts programme, as they navigate the sphere of art-making in a changed world. 

With a title referenced from the works of Rebecca Solnit and Georgia O’Keefe, these seven artists share their meditations upon ideas of distance and proximity, and the simultaneous flattening of, and connection across, space. The nature of collaboration may have changed, but what of its essence remains? Featuring a range of techniques and media including drawing, printmaking, photography, video, choreography and performance art, the exhibition attempts to answer this question by drawing from the rich creative instabilities offered between the faraway and the nearby.
