THE ARTIST'S VOICE
The exhibition The Artist’s Voice, curated by internationally-renowned art historian Lorand Hegyi, presents 34 contemporary artists from different countries and different generations. These works suggest the strong idea that the mission of contemporary art is to transmit visual metaphors about human existence, through a strong expressive language which strengthens and emphasizes the emotional, passionate and human character of contemporary art. The exhibition, set up at the Parkview Museum in Singapore, focuses on the ability of contemporary art to convey essential and existential messages about life, truth, historical visions, ethical values, anthropological constellations. In a historical period dominated by a sense of crisis, disillusionment, instability and disorientation, the artist has the power and responsibility to send his messages on human perspectives, creating new connections between different fields and experiences and providing multiple systems of interpretation of the contemporary reality.
Among the artists on show: Jannis Kounellis, Maurizio Nannucci, Dennis Oppenheim, Anne & Patrick Poirier.
