ABOUT THE EXHIBITION: Barnett Newman’s expression “here and now” from his essay The Sublime is Now (1948) has been employed in a number of contexts in order to accentuate a sense of presence in the experience of art. For the exhibition at Artipelag, ten artists have been invited to create site-specific artworks in relation to the architecture of the exhibition space. It is in the spatial encounter between artwork and viewer that a dialogue arises, which Barnett Newman compared to a conversation between two persons.
