“Triptych” features painting, paper and photo-based artworks by seven internationally diverse artists.
“Triptych” features painting and photo-based artworks by seven internationally diverse artists. Each gallery wall features the work of two distinct artists assembled as a set of three. The assemblage invites viewers to reimagine the traditional triptych form, most commonly created as paintings or carved panels by a single artist. The configuration of two unique practices in each set opens a powerfully articulate and contemporary visual narrative within a cross-cultural framework.
