Artist Talk: 2 July, 2 - 3pm
Closed on Mondays
As part of Apad’s 60th anniversary, Grounding Commonalities presents works by 6 member-artists exploring on themes that are rooted in the notion “saudara”, on kinships, relations and binding ties. The exhibition space at HEARTH is regarded as a testing site on the efforts of grounding commonalities. These efforts are reflective from the individualistic artworks and through the artists-directed exhibition-making process, that will allow cohesiveness and compassion among the artists.
Grounding Commonalities ensues after the exhibition Bridging Through the Age: An Intergenerational Collaborative Exhibition (www.bridgingthroughtheage.com) which took place earlier this year in its attempt to address the on-going issues of bridging the generational gap in the association. In return, Grounding Commonalities addresses the attempt at filling the gaps through explorations on the nature of kinship and relations that bind the association.
