With each new show, Everyday Gallery tries to capture the lived experience and emotions of our time; because art, when curated with care, can attune us to the present moment, allowing us to live life to the fullest. Learning from the past while looking towards the future, Everyday Gallery’s recent exhibitions have tried to create a space where visitors can dwell in the present, where past and future intersect. Everyday Gallery introduces its latest group exhibition, The Sun Also Rises, which provokes the sentiment of early summer through contemporary abstract art.
The Sun Also Rises is an attempt to capture the sensation of early summer. Through the careful juxtaposition of twelve internationally renowned abstract artists, the show turns the gallery into an aesthetic space that welcomes the tactile signs of summer.
The title of this show acts as an incantation, helping us to set aside our worries and to dwell in the present moment. Inspired by a book with the same title, written by American modernist writer Ernest Hemingway, The Sun Also Rises is well aware that every moment is fleeting and that every summer day must come to an end. To live with this knowledge and yet to live life to the fullest is precisely the idea explored by Hemingway. To really live life to the fullest, Hemingway suggests, requires learning to live in the moment. Like Hemingway’s novel, and like the first signs of summer in late spring, Everyday Gallery’s latest group exhibition wants to create a space in which the visitor can dwell, just enjoying the moment without a care in the world, in joyous anticipation of a summer that is about to start. All of this will end as surely as the sun will set; but for today, remember: the sun also rises.
