Hashtag Abstract is a group exhibition that brings together new works by international artists Oliver Clegg, Richard Höglund, Christopher Kuhn and Kasper Sonne. For his inaugural exhibition as a curator, London based collector Kamiar Maleki presents work exploring trends and current developments in abstract painting.
Hashtag Abstract explores the phenomenon of news traveling fast in the digital era and the impact of social media as well as the power of the individual as a critic. Addressing how trends emerge organically, Hashtag Abstract invites the viewer to interact with the works through social media in a critical and engaging way, moving beyond the barrier of mere observation and advocating the power of the image as a tool of engagement.
Exhibiting artists: Oliver Clegg, Richard Höglund, Christopher Kuhn and Kasper Sonne.
Ranching Gallery, July 2 - August 29
