The Elastic Mind

April 20, 2023 | Opening Reception from 3 - 5 p.m.

The Elastic Mind is an art exhibition conceived and curated by Kohl King, showcasing a variety of digital and video artworks from selected artists from around the globe. The exhibition creatively addresses and/ or relates to the theme of the Elastic Mind, which is a psychological term that refers to the ability to think non-linearly and be fluid to survive in times of rapid change and uncertainty. In other words, to "have the capacity to let go of comfortable ideas and become accustomed to ambiguity and contradiction, the capability to rise above conventional mindsets and reframe the questions we ask, the ability to abandon our ingrained assumptions and open ourselves to a new paradigm, the propensity to rely on imagination as much as on logic and to generate and integrate a wide variety of ideas, and the willingness to experiment and be tolerant of failure." (Mlodinow, 2018)

Over 300 artists and creatives answered the open call for the exhibition with a combination of over 1000 entries.

From the large response, 67 artists & artist groups, with a total of 104 digital art and videos were selected for viewing.

The Elastic Mind will open to visitors in the gallery on April 20th at 10 a.m. and run through September 28th, 2023 at 4 p.m. A reception will be held on April 20th from 3 - 5 p.m. at the gallery.
