Exodus. The word has numerous connotations – religious; as a verb to signify mass movement of people; and a significant cultural shift from old to new.
This exhibition focuses on the mass movement away from politics and religion as the traditional ‘meta narratives’ (or guiding principles) in our lives, and explores the role of art in re-connecting us back to our ‘place’ in the world. The hypothesis explored is a simple one: As we move away from these traditional frameworks, what are we moving towards?
Exodus showcases outstanding work from seven emerging and established artists from New Zealand and Australia. It’s an exhilarating show that captures the sense of exploration, freedom, and hope that art can bring to our lives – and perhaps our very existence.
