The title of the exhibition “Minding the G(r)a(s)p” means a triple entendre—gap, gasp, grasp. It is a way to draw attention to the space between seeing and knowing in the exhibition viewing experience. The gasp is the surprise when the audience discovers new narratives or ideas when they are able to look beyond preconceived notions related to the seven mid-career artists/artist collectives on view in the exhibition. The exhibition’s curator Celia Ho proposes to the audience to approach each work individually, in order to grasp the significance and context behind each one of them.
The group exhibition titled “Minding the G(r)a(s)p” features recent works and new commissions by C&G Artpartment, Eastman Cheng, Chow Chun Fai, Jaffa Lam, Lau Hok Shing, Lulu Ngie, and Wong Wai Yin.
