The 2019 A.I.R. National Members exhibition, Active directions of the mind, highlights the ways in which attention can operate as an activated mode of questioning and care, as expressed by the artworks included.
To give attention to something is generous; it denotes consideration and observant care, and the artwork made by twenty of A.I.R. Gallery’s National Members demonstrates their orientation toward a thoughtful mode of attending to. They create artworks with a wide range of stylistic and material approaches, reflecting a plurality of experiences and perspectives that A.I.R. has historically embraced since its inception — a testament to the fact that we each see, hear, feel, experience, and perceive differently.
