This event has ended.

Gallery 456 presents DÉJÀ VU ESCAPES, a solo exhibition of recent body of work by artist Nina Kuo. Relaying on her research into her multicultural experiences, the artist explores the border between past heritages and what could be. She utilizes myriad techniques to transport the viewer into a mystical world of folk majesty, expressionism and abstraction, at the intersection of ritual and Pop Asian futurism. The artist asks that we create a new culture for the Asian Diaspora as we view her work.

She has been an art activist/feminist for years and now presents a rare photo mural from the Basement Workshop. She always combines a divine sense of humor with POP artistic ways in mixed media installations, painting and digital art. Her investigation for reinvented relationships to address beauty, class, race, figure and human gestures with fictional environments transferred into occasional digital art formats as well.

Special Performance: Alan Chow, Opera and Dance presented with live electronics by Lorin Roser and guests (TBA).

Today Nina Kuo creates paintings, large drawings and mural landscapes with multi-symbolic themes and calligraphic shapes while presenting scholar rocks in a surreal manner for emotional appeal. These images provide metaphors for our global bourgeois society and its cultural ambiguity. This haven of image-making seduces and bridges many idioms for her. She has executed many paintings, sculptures and video works related to a mythical destiny full of contradictions and surprise.

Kuo has exhibited work at New Museum, Newark Museum, Creative Time, LA County Museum, Clocktower Gallery, Lightbox, White Box, C. McGinnis Gallery and is in the collections of MOMA, Brooklyn Museum, School of Art Institute, Chicago, Library of Congress, and Biblioteque Nationale.
