Group exhibition curated by WOW x WOW
Simultaneously and literally speaking, a ‘well’, typically contains water, which symbolises life, and in the context of the act of creation, is very fitting indeed. Throughout history, as it was often located in the centre of a neighbourhood, the well also came to symbolise community, which neatly ties in with this show. Community provides excellent opportunities for everyone and facilitates the sharing of ideas and feelings, in turn generating connections and continued growth, something which this show is a testament to.
At a time where online exhibitions are becoming more commonplace, WOW x WOW feels that it’s important to show solidarity with brick and mortar galleries, and highlight the fact that the physical and the virtual can work together in harmony, mutually engaging audiences and supporting the arts. Both gallery models have the ability to co-exist and provide varying benefits to both the artists they work with and the collectors they provide for, making for stronger international networks and a blossoming New Contemporary community.
