Open Call: LonelyShades - Silicon Valley International Contemporary Art Exhibition

Eligibility:

Lonely Shades - Silicon Valley International Contemporary Art Exhibition

March 26-April 06, 2024
Gallery NAT is pleased to announce the event "Lonely Shades - Silicon Valley International Contemporary Art Exhibition" to be held from March 26 to April 06, 2024 at our partner ArtX Gallery in Fremont, San Francisco Bay Area, California, USA.

​In Silicon Valley, the technological heart of the United States, we are about to embark on an unprecedented artistic journey - "Lonely Shades - Silicon Valley International Contemporary Art Exhibition". The exhibition aims to explore how loneliness, as a universal human experience, reveals its profound social and philosophical significance under the artists' brushstrokes, and how it affects our relationship with ourselves, each other, and even the world.

The artworks, whether paintings, sculptures, videos or installations, reflect the artists' understanding and feelings of loneliness, isolation, sadness and the psychological states associated with them in any scenario with their unique perspectives and languages. All the works not only challenge our traditional notions of loneliness, but also aim to provoke a deep reflection on our self-perception, interpersonal relationships and social connections.

Lonely Shades - Silicon Valley International Contemporary Art Exhibition​ welcomes contemporary artists and audiences from around the globe to explore the universal and complex theme of loneliness across cultural and geographic boundaries. In this artistic journey, we not only expect each participant to discover the beauty and meaning in the artworks, but we also hope that this exhibition will inspire deeper reflection on humanity, society, and the world we all live in. In this era of challenges and possibilities, let us find connection, understanding and hope together through the power of art.
