Interpretations III

August 22 – October 30, 2015

“The principles of true art is not to portray, but to evoke.” Jerzy Kosinski

Interpretations: A marriage of 40 visual artists and 40 literary artists, each submitting one work of his/her own choice with any theme. Then, an art swap: Each visual artist receives a work from one of the writers; each literary artist receives an artwork. The task for each artist and writer: to create a second work of art or piece of writing, which is his or her interpretation of the other artist’s work. The result: A show of 80 artworks and 80 pieces of writing. The aim of the show: A reminder that we all see the world differently; our interpretations of the world around us are uniquely ours. How will each artist interpret the other artist’s work? How will the viewer interpret the written words and artworks in the show? This is the third year of this extraordinary show. The previous two years’ entries can be seen in the Interpretations and Interpretations II books, available to view or purchase at the Columbia Art League.
