The ubiquity of new technologies in daily lifeserves as a backdrop for the diverse positions presented within Heart of theTin Man. Twelve artists, with unique understandings of the world and its forces, embrace alternative modes of creativity and unprecedented languages of expression that underline dramatic shifts occurring in the realm of human experience. Incorporating virtual reality, digital mechanics, and interactive installations predicated on the latest in scientific achievement, Heart ofthe Tin Man stimulates the senses of sight, smell, touch, and sound,drawing predominantly from the M WOODS Collection and the post-internet focus of co-founder Michael Xufu Huang.
Extending across the entirety of the museum, the exhibition allows for free association between artists and the themes they address: at once playful and dynamic, worksfrom Ryan Gander, Institute for New Feeling, Liu Wa, and Yangzi invite audiences to explore a wealth of possibilities through combinations of meditation and wry humor; classical mediums of sculpture and painting are reinvented by Yngve Holen and Austin Lee; insidious implications of our hi-tech society are skewered by Lawrence Abu Hamdan and aaajiao; the powers of synthetic materials over human desire are brought to the fore by Sean Raspet and Pamela Rosenkranz; and products of Internet culture are given to refined study with Gillian Wearing and Amalia Ulman.
