Unparalleled Objectives Exhibition

We have the pleasure to invite you to the opening of the exhibition Unparalleled Objectives on May 5th 2012 at 7:00pm at The Katara Art Center, Doha, Qatar . The artist duo Christto Sanz, born in Puerto Rico and based in Doha, Qatar, primarily works with photography as a medium. He uses strong imagery to convey personal and philosophical concerns about modern day life and the post-modernist condition of the 21st century and Andrew Weir, born in South Africa and based in Doha, Qatar, explores subjects of modern day theories and societies in his mixed-media based work.
In this exhibition the artists explore Middle Eastern identities perceived in postmodern conditions through highly aestheticized compositions and pop culture references. Their subjects represent everyday misconceptions of Arab and Middle Eastern cultures in a multicultural context and the exchange and transactions which take place under such settings.

"Postmodernism is not a new era but rather a space to rethink ideas shaped in Modernism. It is a space where the rational is fortified and the absolute truth looses its entirety. A new concept that rejects the linearity of history; where the boundaries between art and reality have vanished and both have collapsed into a universal drill as the sociologist and philosopher Jean Baudrillard mentions in his book Culture and Mock (1978). Simulation that extends into both individual and collective identity. This is evident in recent times where globalization, new media technology and the internationalization of production allow us to enter into foreign realities.
Globalization as implemented today, promotes the exchange of icons and its elements across different societies that lead to considerable transformations, thus turning globalization into a new political, social and economic development that expanded to geography and spacial distances, proposing a global market by exposing the universality of humanity."
The exhibition will continue until June 7th 2012.
