Acts of Transgression
Pearl Lam Galleries
July 21 – August 31 2017
Transgression suggests the action of going beyond a set limit or boundary. This group exhibition gathers nine artists who reveal the otherness of their identities and convey a collective desire for transcendence and empowerment in a variety of mediums and artistic languages. Each exhibiting artist transcends established narratives related to diverse subjects such as culture, identity, material, technology, and way of viewing art. Creating a dialogue among these artists, the exhibition engages audiences on multiple levels in the hope that they too will experience the breaking down of boundaries.
Featuring works by Andy Dewantoro, Inci Eviner, Carlos Rolón/Dzine, Ren Ri, Yinka Shonibare MBE, Sinta Tantra, Thukral & Tagra, Joana Vasconcelos, and John Young.
