Art for Lunch | Nests for the End of the World

The artist exists because the world is not perfect. Art would be useless if the world were perfect, as man wouldn't look for harmony but would simply live in it” – Andrei Tarkovsky

 

Art is a conversation! Join us as Namkha Beschi, Curator of Interpretation & Engagement, ponders the question of a world without art, in response to the exhibition Nests for the End of the World. For this Art for Lunch, you are invited to think critically about the role and purpose of artistic creations in today’s social and political context. What is art and what can it do? Beyond its materiality and theory, art is of and about humanity. How do viewers connect with the art on display and participate in creating its meaning?
