Statement by Ralph Rugoff

Curator of the 58th International Art Exhibition:

“May You Live In Interesting Times”

May You Live in Interesting Times will be formulated in the belief that human happiness depends on substantive conversations, because as social animals we are driven to both create and find meaning, and to connect with others.

In this light, the Exhibition will aim to underscore the idea that the meaning of artworks are not embedded principally in objects but in conversations - first between artist and artwork, and then between artwork and audience, and later between different publics.
Ralph Rugoff
