The exhibition showcases the imagination and masterful techniques used by this select group of artists at the height of their contemporary practice. The theme DREAMscapes is a simple prompt for the artists to delve into the philosophical, emotional, historical and metaphysical imagery of dreams and cosmic phenomena.

The exhibition was juried by Alexandra Munroe, Ph.D, Samsung Senior Curator of Asian Art at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York. Munroe is a pioneering authority on modern and contemporary Asian art and transnational art studies.

Munroe selected the works of art from more than 260 entries, including regional, national and international artists. The exhibition features 45 diverse interpretations of the DREAMscapes theme, including photography, printmaking, sculpture, video, collage/mixed media, digital and drawings. All of the works are available for sale.

The theme DREAMscapes inspired hundreds of the region’s artists to respond with works ranging from pure abstract to landscape paintings, and from surrealist assemblages of dream-like imagery to realist renderings of contemporary dysfunction.
