HALF A POUND OF ART
Considering the Coliseum in Rome, Michaelangelo's David or the artworks of American abstract expressionists such as Pollock or Rothko, art history tells us that the size of an artwork has often effected it's success. Along the lines of bigger is better, smaller, more aesthetic works are overshadowed by their monumental competitors. But their are good reasons why delicacies are always small. Not only by challenging our viewing habits, are small sized objects able to gather the spectator's attention, but also the high artistic and technical quality is often so exquisite that it would be lost in a major realization. The idea of the exhibition HALF A POUND OF ART is to show exceptional pieces of art with dimensions of approximately 50 x 50 cm, which can easily compete with the Big Boys.
