BEGIN:VCALENDAR VERSION:2.0 CALSCALE:GREGORIAN PRODID:iCalendar-Ruby VERSION:2.0 BEGIN:VEVENT DESCRIPTION:
Contemporary Visions unites the perspectives of 1 2 contemporary international artists\, who each call into question the dest ability of the image and of presence. The collective point of departure for each of the artists is how a vision of reality becomes translated through the artistic frame of reference. The selected artists work in all media and within all genres of art - from figurative to abstract and even conceptual \, each being selected for an artistic practice that somehow perceives real ity as one that has been fragmented\, reconstructed\, and destabilized.\n

Certainly the title Contemporary Visions refe rs (at least poetically) to that forward vision which might present some tr anscendent answers for our present existence - a type of artwork (figurativ ely speaking\, of course) as self-fulfilling prophecy in and of itself. Per haps more literally\, it suggests a desire for tomorrow's art to achieve th at vision which remains ceaselessly ahead of the curve\, referring to the v ery acts and objectives of the artists themselves\, as the very nature of ' contemporary art' suggests an art that looks toward the future\, identifyin g and successfully embodying that which is yet to come - that which today r emains indefinable. Therefore the exhibition takes as its origin the notion that perception and perspective is subjective\, and dependent on ex perience and a fictional recreation of that perceived experience. The unify ing conceptual thread that runs throughout the exhibition appears to call f orward to some anxiety toward an Orwellian future - yet one that very  cons ciously presents itself as more Logan's Run than Blade Runner.
