FIRST FRIDAY Opening! Hillyer Art Space

Puzzling (a) Space 
Friday, October 1st, 2010 6PM-9PM
ADMISSION: $5 suggested donation

Hillyer Art Space and Project Andini announce Puzzling (a) Space, a site-specific exhibition of painting, installation, video and performance by four contemporary Asian artists: Soun Hong (Korean), Chakraphan Rangaratna (Thai), Ding Ren (Chinese American), and Eric De Leon Zamuco (Filipino). This exhibition is co-curated by Jeong-ok Jeon (Korean) and Jammie Chang (Taiwan), and as a collaborative project it will bring dynamic cultural perspectives to the District arts community and increase cultural exchange between Asia and the U.S.

Puzzling (a) Space begins with the concept of site-specific art, the notion that an artwork comes to life within the exhibition space and an audience's participation is similarly an essential component to the artworks' realization. The place is not just a backdrop or a simple space to contain the artwork. Rather, the place conveys the purpose and acts as a vehicle for the art, just as the audience's interaction acts as a catalyst.  Thus the artwork will only be complete in the context of three contributing elements: the artist, the place, and the audience.
