“Art is the mind’s vehicle and weapon. We use it to change, to understand and to move, both others and ourselves. It allows us to analyze the world and accept ourselves.”
AsymMEtry is a visual arts exhibition that celebrates human flaws. Artists will discuss their personal flaws and techniques they use to cope with these weaknesses. Some of the questions being addressed in this artistic experiment will be: What are natural flaws? Do they come from cultural influences or love? Why do we strive for symmetry? Why should we view asymmetry as more powerful and beautiful?
Acceptance is one of the ideals of The Love Yourself Project. The Project has been utilized as a platform where artists come to explore self-love. We are offering artists and viewers the experience of finding profound joy as they discover and accept their authentic selves. Our aim is to fight any societal notion that tells us how to look, feel or be. We strive for a community of lovers, teachers, students and listeners and engage in conversations and activities that invigorate individuality and remind us of an important task: “to love yourselves unconditionally.”
Half of all proceeds will be donated to the Love Yourself Project.
