Liminality As Battle-Line – On view October 31 - November 5, 2018

Sotheby’s Institute of Art is pleased to present Liminality As Battle-Line, a group exhibition curated by Hejun Xu and Jingmei Yu, two MA Art Business candidates in class of 2018. The exhibition will be on view at Sotheby’s Institute of Art, New York from October 31st through November 6th. The exhibition is part of a series of projects curated by students of Sotheby’s Institute of Art enrolled in Curating Contemporary Art. The exhibitions are free and open to the public from 9 am to 6 pm with pre-registration required.

Liminality as Battle-Line, featuring Elaine Byrne, Ludovica Carbotta, Anh Thuy Nguyen, and Pei-Ling Ho & Emily Smith , is an exhibition exploring the liminal experience through the persisting structures of womanhood, international identities, and the social and cultural battles in the United States today. Evoking a poetic state of art, material, body and space, the exhibition unravels ideas and practices created in this liminal realm that is constantly challenged by the ongoing negotiation between history and progression, diaspora and the dissolution of national borders, as well as emancipation and power.
