UR HANDS R UR HEART*: A Private Collection

The inaugural show for Fo Kia Nou 24/7 project space will take place on Saturday April 26th from 2-7 pm.  We hope you will come celebrate with us!

Art collections are often thought of, as a preordained practice for the wealthy.  The money and time spent acquiring much sought out artifacts from different periods in art history to create a one of a kind art collection can be quite lengthy and tremendously costly.  Unlike the selection of the works purchased by the well-to-do, my private art collection comes directly from the artists hands, who are often friends of mine.  I feel traces of them, imprinted in the material that they decide to work with and I consider myself fortunate to have their pieces gracing my home.

Fo Kia Nou 24/7 is delighted to invite you to the opening of this project space by sharing UR HANDS R UR HEART: A Private Art Collection, which brings together the work of more than 40 artists that hail from different parts of the world.  We hope you will join us!

*insight for the title of this exhibit came from artist Gabriel Orozco’s 1991 piece, entitled Mis manos son mi corazon (My hands are my heart)
