Entanglements: A Celebration of the Abstract Aesthetic
Quantum scientists have proven that the mere act of human observation can affect the physical properties of subatomic particles. If you separate two entwined particles by great distances, the observation of one particle affects the physical properties of the entwined partner particle.
This is called entanglement. It has been said that the beauty of art, and it’s interpretation,
Beauty of art is in the eye of the beholder and this is certainly true of art, especially when the art in question is somewhat or totally abstract. The further away a work of art is from representation the greater the need for an observer to give it meaning. The meaning is relative to the act of observation.
Entanglements is an open call exhibition that explores and celebrates the abstract nature of artistic inquiry. The Oak Park Art League invites artists in all disciplines to submit work in any medium that answers the ways artists understand the world around them in respect to the word ‘entanglement’. Artists submitting video work must provide their own projection system.
Artists are invited to submit up to two works, each not to exceed 48" in its largest dimension. All work must have been created in the past 3 years and not previously exhibited at OPAL
