Curated by Diana Ali
Preview 19th Feb 1900-late
Curator and artist, Diana Ali in collaboration with The Elysium Gallery is pleased to present the exhibition ‘Dialogues: A Fake Romance?’; an exhibition of contemporary art work exploring the dichotomies of dialogue through painting, drawing, installation, film and photography.
For a dialogue to form, the process requires another. When another is presented the dialogue becomes a dichotomy. Do we adopt another persona according to who we are talking to and how genuine is that chat? According to David Bohm, no one wins a dialogue; a dialogue is an exploratory process and does not work towards a goal. However, Mikhail Bakhtin held that relationships and connections exist among all living beings, and that dialogue creates a new understanding of a situation that demands change. Dialogue can be seen as an exchange but this exchange is not always equal or amicable, it can manifest into an emotional charge, disagreements, it may lead to conflicts, irrationality, fake romances, or jealous contingencies. Does dialogue hinder us or further us?
