2023 NYRCA ANNUAL PROJECTS “OUTSIDE OF ART · STORYTELLING”
Humans always try to surpass the prison of time, stretching or compressing it to make life burst into brilliant sparks in the gaps of time. As we pass through the overt era of the pandemic, we marvel at the changes it has brought to our lives, and anxiously return to the covert era of the pandemic. We realize that the pandemic has never disappeared from human society, and people are changing the way they perceive and treat the world because of its overt or covert states. In the overt era of the pandemic, humans are more fragile and sensitive, especially artists.
If life itself is a gift of mysterious power, and time is only a phenomenon, and the past, present, or future is not a linear extension structure, then time is not an equal existence for different individuals. In the creation and interaction of art, our time fully demonstrates its elastic power.
When life becomes a work of art, and living becomes the essence of art, every aspect of life becomes irreplaceable and unique in your work. For example, the money-making activities necessary for survival, the various emotional experiences encountered in life, and the various events we encounter by chance or intentionally. Therefore, every story experienced by oneself is precious because of “truth + sincerity,” which is the reason why we launched this project.
We will present each artist’s unique story in stages, and each stage will be a separate exhibition.
Even though “the viewer is obsolete”.
Fortunately, this exhibition has received a positive response from artists both domestically and internationally. Prior to the deadline, we have received stories from over 210 artists. Each story is moving, and we are eager to share them with you. After conducting research with our project’s academic team, we have adjusted the exhibition plan from one exhibition per month to two exhibitions per month. This allows the audience to have the opportunity to witness more fascinating souls.
