ZHAN Art | Space is thrilled to host Moments: ‘Big Cities, Small Stories’, an exhibition that celebrates the life and emotions of everyday people by five artists.
‘Big Cities, Small Stories’ is an extension of Moments: ‘Discover Wanderlust’ held in 2022 by founding members Brian Tai, Francis Lee and Lee Wee Xian. The current group exhibition welcomes two additional artists; Eve Yap and Shireen Lee.
Together, a total of 38 artworks will be displayed under the exhibition, with every piece uniquely poised to evoke empathy, introspection and contemplation.
The first exhibition of “Moments: ‘Discover Wanderlust” had been a breakthrough and success for the collective. It inspired them to aim for their next exhibition to be bigger and better.
This time, instead of showcasing travel experiences as the main subject matter, ‘Big Cities, Small Stories’ highlights the essence of real people, real stories.
“The collective pushed themselves to capture beautiful moments on canvas. Each artist, through their unique style, hues and brushstrokes, painted a different array of emotions and narratives. We hope that the audience will cherish the small moments like we do.” said Francis Lee, one of the artists who is part of the Moments exhibitions.
“Moments: ‘Big Cities, Small Stories’’ can be experienced as a nostalgia exhibition with a modern touch. The artworks are warm-hearted as we are transported to small yet distinctively familiar moments, such as a street vendor making your daily coffee-to-go, or your favourite grandma gathering her family to prepare for a feast. Each work has a story to tell, and the artists tell them well.” said Desmond Tong, founder and curator of ZHAN Art | Space.
Moments: Big Cities, Small Stories is on exhibition now until 24 September 2023. Viewers can look forward to a range of artworks with prices ranging between RM2,800 to RM 20,000.
