EVENT DESCRIPTION

Welcome to “The Present”, an exhibition that invites viewers to engage with the immediacy of our current moment through the diverse perspectives of international and local emerging contemporary artists. In an era marked by rapid technological advancements, global interconnectedness, and unprecedented challenges, “The Present” explores the multifaceted experiences that define our time.

The artworks selected for this exhibition reflect the complexities and nuances of living in the present. They navigate themes of identity , technology , environment, and social change, offering both intimate and expansive views of contemporary life. Each piece serves as a testament to the artists’ engagement with the world around them, capturing moments of beauty, tension, and transformation.

As you move through the exhibition, you will encounter a range of media, including painting, sculpture, digital art, and installations. These works not only represent the physical and conceptual landscapes of our time but also challenge us to reconsider our place within them. The immediacy of the present moment is juxtaposed with the enduring impact of our actions and choices, prompting reflection on the temporal and the timeless.

“The Present” aims to create a dialogue between the artwork and the viewer, and between the artists, encouraging an active engagement with the here and now. It is a space where past and future converge, reminding us that the present is a continual process of becoming. Through this exhibition, we hope to foster a deeper understanding of the diverse realities that shape our world and inspire a collective contemplation of what it means to live in the present.
