Schedule of Exhibitions <April, 2014 to March, 2015>

Leandro ERLICH
May 3 [Sat] - Aug 31 [Sun]
Employing simple devices, Leandro ERLICH causes us to regard everyday reality with suspicion. His friendly, straight-forward approach gives maximum play to art’s essential appeal as an experience enjoyed without words and explanation. By moving us to question our routine perceptions, Erlich opens us to diverse perspectives and thoughts. Visitors to this exhibition can look forward to having their perceptions undermined by artworks that dynamically intervene in spaces.

Nov 1 [Sat] - Mar 15, 2015 [Sun]
