Opulent Vision presents unique perspectives that reflect historical ceremonies, mythical lands, and unique architectural environments. The exhibition will fill the gallery's penthouse space with vivid colors, rich wallpaper, paintings of inspired interiors, and a site-specific installation. Artists in Opulent Vision previously on view at fordPROJECT include Lisha Bai, Alessandro Belgiojoso, Kent Henricksen, and Naama Tsabar. fordPROJECTis pleased to introduce new artists Annika Connor, Kristen Schiele and Veronica Smirnoff.
