April 20, 2023 - Sept. 28, 2023

April 20, 2023 | Opening Reception @ 3:00 - 5:00 p.m. 

The Elastic Mind is an art exhibition concepted and curated by Kohl King showcasing a variety of digital and video artworks by selected artists from around the globe which creatively addresses and/ or relates to the theme based on the psychological term of the same name.

The Elastic Mind refers to the ability to think non-linearly and be fluid to survive in times of rapid change and uncertainty. In other words, to “have the capacity to let go of comfortable ideas and become accustomed to ambiguity and contradiction, the capability to rise above conventional mindsets and reframe the questions we ask, the ability to abandon our ingrained assumptions and open ourselves to new paradigm, the propensity to rely on imagination as much as on logic and to generate and integrate a wide variety of ideas, and the willingness to experiment and be tolerant of failure.” (Mlodinow, 2018)
