“VOICES OF THE FUTURE” is the first group show to be held in Y2ARTS’ new gallery at Henderson, it includes artworks contextualised by a selection of new artworks from the gallery’s represented artists. Featuring painting, sculptures and limited-edition prints, “VOICES OF THE FUTURE”draws attention to the wide range of the gallery’s collection, which has taken much liberty to challenge our understanding of art, as well as to elevate the appreciation of Art in our local art scene.
It is an intriguing journey that an artist takes in the creation of his artwork. It starts with an idea rendered into a palpable expression; which, traditionally, takes the form of a painting, photography or sculpture. Nowadays the process of creation involves the artist challenging the boundaries of art, and experimenting with mediums as an alternative exploration with their narratives. The result can be an enhanced dialogue between the artwork being produced, the artist that created it, and the viewer. We see a story unfolds with individualised meaning being surfaced.
The artists, in this exhibition, originates from diverse backgrounds, age-groups and countries. Every one of them has a unique style in telling their stories and has to contend with the tension between perception and meaning, which also raises important questions about the literal narrative meanings sometimes expected from artists in today’s growing international market for narrative and concept-led art.
At this particular exhibition, you will be able to interact with some of the artists, who would be present. They will be able to share their innermost ideas and thoughts about their concepts. During the opening, many of their collectors will also be present, and it is also a great opportunity to network and exchange art collecting-experiences; which has often resulted with many friendships of common interest.
