Passion Complex: Selected Works from the Albright-Knox Art Gallery

2007.8.1 (Wed.) - 2007.11.11 (Sun.)

The Albright-Knox Art Gallery has developed its marvelous collection, focusing on artists whose works reflect their contemporaneity of their time, the "here and now".

The exhibition "Passion Complex: Selected Works from the Albright-Knox Art Gallery" introduces 15 artists who have radical points of view, whose works mirror the intricacies of human inner worlds and the incredible ranges of passion in our contemporary life.

These artists gain insights into mundane landscape of our daily life and complexities of human relationships. For some, their expressions take as motifs the familiar in our ordinary, such as a plastic bag and a fluorescent light, and, by simple transformation of size or color, generate something unknown, or extraordinary.

Concealed with their apparent familiarity and surface beauty, the works that reflect the absurdity, ennui, or anxiety of everyday life using inescapable memory drag us to the realm of passion that has been buried deeply inside today's world.
