The title of this show refers to the context of our times and the many levels of disparity we are trying to reconcile. As a renowned sculptor Magdalena Abakanowicz wrote “Art will remain the most astonishing activity of mankind born out of struggle between wisdom and madness, between dream and reality”. Despite our current political, environmental and economic climate which affects the morale of all of us, artists continue to create.
