The museum’s exhibition project:
“The Crossroads of the World”
In November 2018, through Monitoring-Surveillance, I was selected as an International Project, “The Crossroads of the World” which works with Pashmin Art Gallery in Hamburg, Germany.
About the Exhibition
Pashmin Art Gallery selected artists for a museum project to be opened in the spring of 2019 at the Museum of Contemporary Art in China. The theme of the exhibition is “The Crossroad of the World”. This exhibition shows how influential art can bring cultures together for friendship between different cultures. This will help us get a better world for future generations. The purpose of the exhibition is to begin the intellectual and artistic exchange between different cultures and continue to contribute to this cultural exchange in the future.
The large-scale group exhibition launched by the Beijing Museum of Contemporary Art and Pashmin Art Consortia aims to open the door of communication between wisdom and art in different cultures, and is committed to contribute to the deeper cultural exchanges in future. Mental worlds of twenty-eight international artists mirrored in their artworks meet in a Chinese museum and function as “The Crossroads of the World” where ideas merge and emerge.
The fascinating references of the artworks are elusive and the apparent appeal of their surfaces, diverse techniques, three-dimensionality, etc. arouse our reflection. The reward is enriching our understanding of how visual meanings can be construed from different markers, images and associations, from poetics of art, in a general sense. They try to get into our unconscious and play a major role in the production of visual meanings, as well as in our spiritual life.
Each viewer is different from another one. Each one makes special meanings out of seeing a particular artwork. The gender of the viewer, the job, the life style, education, and generally, the whole “Being” of a viewer connects her to an artwork. To put it simply, the artist puts some participants (human or nonhuman) in his/her art. S/he represents some elements. The viewer then, in an interaction with the art, is connected to these participants in one way or another, and the composition of the work itself has its own influence on the viewer. These three representational, interactive and compositional functions, or more accurately “metafuctions” work simultaneously to create meaning in the mind of the viewer.
