Boxed In (One Foot at a Time)
27 March @ 1:00 pm - 5 April @ 6:00 pmFree
BOXED IN (one foot at a time) is an exhibition which showcases Penang based visual artists from various different backgrounds. Artists were given two wooden boxes which measures 12’’ x 12’’ to let their creative imaginations run wild. The exhibition promises to be a strong group exhibition filled with mystery of how each artist will execute their projects.
The exhibition is split into two parts. The first part, which is a preview of the exhibition, will be held at 26, Lorong Carnarvon from the 27th of March 2020 to the 29th of March 2020. The preview at the studio space will be showcasing artists’ works in progress and artists at work, as well as sharing sessions during visiting hours.
The latter part, which is a curated exhibition with completed artworks, will be held at Gallery Space of China House from the 3rd of April 2020 to the 30th of April 2020. Throughout the duration of the exhibition, there will be art tours and various artist sharing sessions.
The exhibition is curated by Ivan Gabriel, a curator who has worked in a wide range of enviroments for a few years. He pays meticulous attention to detail, and this translates in his work as a visual artist as well. He enjoys working in groups, doing curatorial walk-throughs as well as sharing about the art, the artists, the ideology of a particular exhibition to visiting gallery attendees. He has found that sharing with the general public about the artworks and the artists, only helps them to understand art better. Hence why, he continues to produce and curate more exhibitions, to not only showcase the talent in Penang, but to educate the general public as well.
He founded The 8’’ by 6’’ Project , which was first showcased during the first Open Studios Penang (2019) at 26, Lorong Carnarvon. After successfully selling 65% of the artworks in the first edition, a second edition was born four months later, which became a travelling show. He is currently planning for the third edition of The 8’’ by 6’’ Project, which most likely would make an appearance in the second half of 2020.
