The exhibition will center on 12 to 15 leading contemporary artists whose works cover a broad range of formal approaches and media, including painting, photography, sculpture, site-specific wall-drawings, and video installations. All artwork in the exhibition will date from the past ten years. (KMA originated exhibition)
