DESCRIPTION

GLOBAL / NATIONAL - The Order of Chaos is an exhibition that “addresses the anxieties of economics, environmental tragedies, and societies of control that define the chaos of globalization. It explores these social issues in an aesthetic way to demystify the notion of art only as an ornamental production. This vision includes images from abstraction to figuration, from direct messages to esoteric thoughts,” explains Co-Founder/Artistic Director Papo Colo. The exhibition investigates how local artists from a variety of backgrounds are placed in relation to the rest of the world. Seen through a global lens, this exhibition explores the multiple cultures that populate our general culture and how the local and national are inextricably linked to the global.

 

This exhibition examines the tensions of uncontrollable forces that are dislocating our society to redefine a new civilization. The artworks reflect how the national contains global concerns, searching inside our culture to project our global position. This exhibition tells the story of those concerns and new ways in which we can order the chaos.
