Invisible Connections : 8.6.14 - 9.20.14

V A L L E Y


The Barn Project The Barn Project, established in 2014 by founding principals Julie Harvey & Michael Liener (of Harvey Art Projects and Aurobora respectively), aims to broaden the dialogue between traditional and contemporary art cultures by exploring connections and cultivating the common turf that continues to change and shift between artistic visions current in the art world. In doing so, The Barn Project’s mission is to highlight not only the universality of contemporary art but to emphasize the intriguing intersections as they emerge and take root. A barn-raising is a collective action of a community in which a space for one of the members is built collectively by members of the community. It is collaboration coupled with vision that precipitates positive change. And likewise, it is through collaborative effort among artist communities that art becomes a stepping stone for social engagement, for altering calcified conceptions, for shifting global viewpoints, and ultimately for a regenerative shift in perception. In this spirit, The Barn Project fuses the artistic vision of contemporary artists from around the world, including indigenous art movements rarely seen in the context of contemporary international exhibitions. Over the course of each calendar year, The Barn Project facilitates a select number of programs where invited artists from the venue’s host country exhibit alongside international and indigenous artists. This confluence of expression and experimentation opens a window of observation which allows for seeing invisible connections. It is the fidelity of these collaborative efforts that are both at the heart of the creative process and the essential components in the ongoing international exhibitions generated by The Barn Project.


Invisible Connections : 8.6.14 - 9.20.14 Vision is the art of seeing things invisible - Jonathan Swift When contemporary art is exhibited alongside the art of ancient cultures, it is evident that these disparate works share a formal and spiritual source. It is here at this nexus where an invisible connection manifests vision. This exhibition is not so much an argument in favor of art practice and formal presentation but rather as a way of seeking and appreciating an unexpected conceptual union. Through this process, ongoing dialogues arise creating a new interlocking of current social perceptions, geographic influences and ancient traditions.
