Exhibition ( art now )

Orchestrating a medley of works from key contemporary visionaires such as Gerhard Richter, Pierre Huyghe, Lars Laumann, Artur Zmijewski, Lawrence Weiner , Johanna's Billing, Gabriel Orozco, Thomas Struth, Pawel Althamer,Guido Van der Werve, Olivier Babin, Maurizio Cattelan, William Kentridge and Tacita Dean "As Long As It Lasts" lingers as a seminal assemblage by the brilliant curator Tom Eccles. By juxtaposing this body of artists around a inherently spiritual theme the diverse nature of their aesthetic coalesced in a way that was a remarkable statement of visual grace .
"The exhibition As Long as it Lasts takes its title from a work by Lawrence Weiner and brings together art works by fourteen artists from different generations which, seen in the context of one another, ruminate on the transitory nature of life, the contemplation of mortality, impermanence, and immanence of death. Poignant, and sometimes poetic, the works selected share an often personal, deeply felt, existential humanism."
