The dynamic team of artists for this exhibition has been provided with the intriguing option of personalising and/or localising the image of Gautama Buddha, within an informed context that is visually-legitimate, in view of the pre-conceived notions of the visual representation of the image.
This significant showcase celebrates an irrefutably powerful anthropomorphic representation of a subject that entails great art historical emphasis and that embodies an international reputation for its profound metaphorical and philosophical symbolism. The Enlightened One: Images of Gautama Buddha in Contemporary Art will allow you to indulge in yet another realm of aesthetic improvisation, under the fascinating and all-encompassing hood of creative contemporaneity.
