Better Tomorrow Than Today
About the Event
Artery Art Space is pleased to present “Better Tomorrow Than Today” featuring works by Andre Baldovino, Rene Bituin, Geremy Samala, and Eva Yu, that explores the divide between abstraction and the ideal of tomorrow, where the future would signal advancement, and abstraction as utopian project by way of objective representation.
The exhibit thus considers painting today, pondering on its internal conflict as carriers of indirect communication in the time of instantaneous information: the diversity and indeterminacy of signifiers lending to the postmodern or to post-internet paradigms - abstraction as ghost in the machine haunting today’s mediascape with stored memories of a bright future yet to be realized.
