The Triennial [is] a big milestone to look forward to in terms of bringing our community back from the darkest days of the pandemic.
There is a pivotal message in the exhibition and it is one that stresses the global nature of all cultures.
The biennial we will remember during this epoch of volatility and white noise is the one that takes us to task, as individuals and a civilization undergoing transformation at a warp speed.
Art builds bridges in this time when bridges are being demolished and we hope the triennial will be a kind of mental guide and inspiration to help every one of us resist isolation and loneliness.
Korean artist Mina Cheon has launched a new digital initiative dubbed Eat Chocopie Together, in which she implores the public to share the treat virtually with a friend “for global peace,” to help those affected by the coronavirus, and to combat anti-Asian racism.
What really gets me out of bed is having the opportunity and privilege to talk to artists as part of my job, to see their work develop over time, and still be surprised each day by their art.
