Dorothy Circus Gallery is proud to present the summer group exhibition House of the Rising Light, featuring 42 artists from the Asian continent. The show will open on 30 July 2020 at DCG Rome and London and will be on view until 18 September 2020.
Part of the gallery’s 2020 exhibition programme titled Mirrored Souls: The Year of Love and dedicated to the theme of universal Love, the exhibition House of the Rising Light seeks to further deepen the gallery’s curatorial research on this theme with a renewed attention to the most promising, thought-provoking and avant-garde talents of the region.
Following the steps of their predecessors and world-renowned 20th century and contemporary Japanese icons such as Yoshimoto Nara, Takashi Murakami, Yayoi Kusama and Tetsuya Ishida, but also of international pioneers such as Mark Ryden, Os Gemeos, Barry McGee and Gilbert & George, the artists from House of The Rising Light have developed themes founded in a restless, revolutionary and innovative search of a Pop, Surrealist and Dreamlike imaginary that provides comfort to the adversities of the contemporary society and the uncertainty of the future.
A strong attention is also paid to the realms of dreams and adolescence, themes strongly rooted - especially in regards to the visual language - in the Manga and Anime culture, and always conveyed by the curatorship of the gallery.
The works presented stem from a variety of genres, from Pop Surrealism and Street Art to the New Figurative and New Contemporary, and encompass the vastness of the Asian continent, starting from Japan, China, Hong Kong, Cambodia, South Korea and going south-east to Thailand, Philippines, Vietnam, and arriving all the way to Iran.
