Who am I? What is it that makes me “Me”?
What the various ways that I identity myself?
And how are these identities shaped by the different groups I’m part of?
These are some of the questions explored in the upcoming local art exhibition “Artists Anonymous: Creative Self-Help”, opening in less than a week on Thursday May 5.
The exhibition features new and original works by 5 artists, who explore their own identity as creatives and individuals, as well as how this shifts in the context of community. In this scenario, community is experienced through the artists coming together over the past 4 months to create and organize this exhibition.
The title is based on that of support groups, such as Alcoholics Anonymous, normally meant for people seeking support with specific adversities in their life, such as grief, illness or addiction.
In the context of being an artist, these struggles are about overcoming inner barriers, creative blocks, and the fears of exhibiting one’s truth.
And on a grander scale, all people are artists - we’re attempting to master the art of living, to master the process of crafting the single masterpiece of living a life worth living, a life that truly matters to us.
What would you like to create for yourself?
Who are you, really? And what is it that truly matters to you?
Come meet the artists, converse with new friends, and uncover something more for yourself at the opening reception on Thursday May 5, 7-10pm at That Spare Room.
And while you’re at it, check out the exclusive collection on Visual Troop featuring 10 select artworks from this exhibition. These designs are available for pre-order online through Artist Anonymous Collective.
