Crossing Art is pleased to announce the opening of Seeing Red, a group exhibition that examines the use of the color red in contemporary art by exploring its various meanings historically in Eastern and Western cultures as well as the scientific and physical responses it universally manifests. Seeing Red showcases artists from a variety of different backgrounds with a vast range of influences and includes work by Andrea Belag, Felix Beyreuther, Heungman, Eric Jiaju Lee, Nereo, John Moore, Hyungsub Shin, Levent Tuncer, and Richard Tsao. Although cultural differences can be discerned, the fluctuating notations of the color red throughout history and the extent of its cultural relevance and differences is a subject that remains to be explored. Seeing Red attempts to begin a dialogue about the color red but does not attempt to cover all of the possible associations as the meanings are endless and forever evolving while new relationships to the color emerge through the changing world and beckoning future. Seeing Red offers a unique look at a group of artists who have carefully explored the color red in expansive and ingenious ways.
