THREADS at Galeria Karowa

May 12 – June 12, 2011

(opening reception May 12/  6pm – 10pm)

THREADS is a group exhibition featuring the works of six international artists, and focuses on the ubiquity of symbolism and mythology throughout all ears and cultures. In an age of globalization, cultural distinctions merge as do symbols and myths traditionally used to depict common themes exploring the human experience. Placed in an unfamiliar context from their original point of creation, parallels can be drawn between works produced independently form each other, highlighting the true fundamentals of human connectedness.
