Introspective 04.25.22-6.12.22

The Contemporary at Northern Waters Resort presents "Introspective" show. 

"Introspective” is loosely defined as the examination of one’s own conscious or subconscious thoughts, feelings, and state of mind. According to psychology, the process of introspection relies on the observation of one’s mental state, while in a spiritual context it refers to the examination of one’s soul. This show will address the artist’s perspective and attempts to communicate their self-reflection across different viewpoints. Combining these works for this show, we will convey an alternative and exciting approach different languages, cultures, and individual minds.
