DESCRIPTION

Mine: Take What’s Yours


 

From its connotations of wealth and power to its iconic symbolism of transcendence, Gold has captivated artists and entrepreneurs alike. With its glistening allure and chemically inert properties, this unique mineral represents worldwide the ideal state of permanence and prosperity defying the transience of everyday life. As with the golden mean and the gold standard, the color and metal are tied to timeless forms and paradigms. This exhibition investigates the widespread obsession with gold – visually, economically and spiritually – in its manifold capacities. The artists featured in “Mine: Take What’s Yours” use both color and medium to explore the alluring and illusory quality of this mesmerizing material.
