Art Exhibition Reception: Yiwei Leo Wang
Join us in celebrating the opening of #SOFAB Quilted Emptiness, an art exhibition by Yiwei Leo Wang that is on view in our 2nd floor Fine Art Case.
Inspired by the exhibition’s themes of comfort and community in party culture, the reception will be held in the Game Room bocce court featuring a DJ set and an interactive art installation.
#SOFAB Quilted Emptiness is a multimedia installation composed of round quilts, held by clothespins hanging from the top. Rather than providing viewers with a quilt’s typical purpose of blanketing, here their warmth is projected as the fleeting comfort of partying. As a retreat from everyday issues, partying and celebration may seem trivial, but such moments of escape can be critical for survival. This installation evokes the dazzling communal experience of clubbing, creating a temporary utopia before we face reality once again, this time with the support from our community.
