BARN PROJECT THREE: SEEING THE UNSEEN SUN VALLEY
3 AUGUST - 30 SEPTEMBER 2016 Barn Project 3: Seeing the Unseen asks the question—what happens when we observe something for the first time, can we abandon our bias and expectation in order to fully explore what we are viewing? With this exhibition Seeing the Unseen-- presented in dual gallery venues at Aurobora & Harvey Art Projects—Barn Project 3 attempts to create a bridge. A bridge that links art practices from divergent cultures; a bridge which connects compositions, substrates and mediums; a bridge that arches between individual artistic inspirations; but most importantly, a bridge which provides a vantage point for a viewer to establish affection for the unseen.
