Nature is constantly re-creating us and filling us with knowledge. Life is like a crumbling sand that we are sprinkling between our hands…

This exhibition is like two lives: Past and Present… Past with projection to future: life history, emotions, feelings, losses, beliefs, finding the basis… Present – Future – Whole is as if it is falling apart…

SIZE MATTERS curated by William Norton

Opening September 28, 2018 from 12-8 pm
Performances Saturday, September 29 starting at 3pm
100 Bogart Street Gallery, 100 Bogart Street, Brooklyn NY 11206

SIZE MATTERS: the exhibition that asks that question
Curator William Norton has assembled artists from Japan, China, the USA and the UAE to get to the heart of the issue that keeps artists up every night: Does Size Matter? Asian cultures conceive the importance of scale in relationship to value differently than Western artists. This question of scale is the driving vision behind this show: is intimacy only possible in the small scale and can a question of mythological proportions only be expressed in a grand manner?
