SENSE & SENSIBILITY IN ART
May 18 - July 19, 2019
“Sometimes I have kept my feelings to myself, because I could find no language to describe them in, but what was worn and hackneyed out of all sense and meaning.” — Jane Austen.
'Sense' is the ability to act with logic, judgement and rationale while sensibility is attached to feelings and emotions. Art possess the virtue to evoke sense and sensibility in everyone. We appreciate the same piece of art and each of us will connect with the artwork variously. What one perceives from art is influenced by one’s state of mind. In another word, our perception of artwork and our connection with the artist will evolve and change through time and experience.
Sense & Sensibility in Art is a group exhibition featuring nine artists —
Ai Weiwei, Robert Rauschenberg, Yoshio Ikezaki, Fu Site, Christopher Wool, Jim Barry, Ian Backstrom, Frances H. Arnold, and Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn. The 16 artworks expand the boundaries and meanings of Modern and Contemporary Art.
This exhibition is made possible by the Contemporary Exhibition Fund of Ai+ Gallery, established with gifts from Ai Weiwei and Frances H. Arnold. Additional sponsorship is provided by Kylin Gallery and WMing Art Inc.
