The current situation in the world is a languorous disdain for everything that is political, and an indifference to the sensually appealing. While these states of mind are the result of security concerns, the recession and political and military rhetoric, the world of art has begun to reflect the sort of melancholy that proceeds to linger pleasurably.
Thus, the “modern modern” is an exhibition at the Chelsea Art Museum which features the works by 34 contemporary artists. The group exhibition has been curated by Pati Hertling and the Home of the Miotte Foundation has worked with The Chelsea Art Museum. The exhibition dwells on the emotional and aesthetic sensibility of these contemporary artists and refuse to adhere to stylistic classifications.
If one were to expect abstract, conceptual or figurative, the works in the exhibition refuse to be classified. Most of the works lack colour and brightness, have a tinge of melancholy and deny political rhetoric. Some of the 34 artists whose works shall be on display are Peter Kisur, Nina Rhide, Ken Okiishi, Reto Plfer, Falke Pisanoi and others. The exhibition began on the April 17 and will end on June 13.
