DESCRIPTION

ARENA 1 is pleased to announce NOW, a group exhibition curated by Yossi Govrin, which includes the work of five contemporary artists. The exhibition opens on Saturday, March 15th, 2008 with a reception from 7–9 pm and continues through April 26th. 

 

The title of the exhibition reflects the idea that all the works have been created specifically for the space and that they represent one particular idea each artist is addressing at this moment in her/his practice. While the art world debates whether painting is alive or dead and an artist of the stature of Tony Smith describes his work as “presence” rather than sculpture, there really are no rules for what contemporary art is now.  NOW is just what is happening – and it exists in the context of all the schools of art practice that came before.
