The art exhibition is the most crucial stage in the development of a creator and his works; it is a once-in-a-lifetime chance that includes a number of characters, including the owner of the gallery, collectors, fans, and enthusiasts.

The exhibition period becomes a priceless sales opportunity in addition to its cultural and commercial worth, providing feedback on what was done for the creation of the works as well as for their improvement and preparation.

An art exhibition can take many various forms, but they always strive to tell a clear and compelling tale of creative inquiry, of a particular subject, or to serve as a testament to a public or private art portfolio by careful choice of the pieces to be displayed.

One of these is the art exhibition of Annie Hsiao-Wen Wang, where it took at least four years of planning for the show Luminaries. Wang based her sculptures made of copper wire on her fascination with bioluminescent species found in the deep sea, which inspired her love of marine life. These light sculptures brighten the pitch-black exhibit hall in the same manner as deep-sea marine life glows because the wires were coated with neon colour paints.

Bubble Coral, which emanates an almost turquoise-colored hue, is located at the entryway. Corals are sessile creatures with plant-like cells dwelling in their tissues, although they are frequently mistaken for plants. Bubble Coral was made into something really light and fragile by Wang utilising a unique wire architecture, and it now stands there on the pedestal like a ray of hope.

A massive work called Hydrozoa, which represents a group of incredibly small carnivorous organisms that resemble jellyfish or plants, sits just across from Bubble Coral. Their tiny tentacles, which are known to be equipped with stinging cells, have been fashioned by the artist to resemble octopus tentacles. Hydrozoa rotates clockwise, emitting a bright green glow that enables observers to view this intriguing organism from all sides, even below.

There are nine pieces on show in all. Visitors will run across a variety of aquatic organisms in this intriguing realm, including the Sea Angel, Medusa, Comb Jelly, and Dumpling Squid. These animals also have a lyrical air to them because to the way they hang in the room, which is similar to the innocent mobiles made by American sculptor Alexander Calder (1898–1966).

Another art exhibition is from a young Spanish Croatian artist Filip Custic who has concentrated on using the human body as a canvas in works that are colourful, layered with 20th-century art and psychoanalytical elements, and fragmented with mirrors and screens. The results frequently resemble fanciful settings created for high-end fashion magazines, but this is not by chance: the 30-year-old started out in marketing and has experience working with publications like Vogue, Esquire, and GQ. Surprisingly, he has not become jaded by the creative possibilities of the commercial world.

Thus, it is appropriate that one of Custic’s debut solo exhibitions has just begun at Tokyo’s Parco Museum, a high-end shopping centre. The show, “Human Product,” features a large number of the Madrid-based artist’s pioneering pieces that, in the artist’s words, “present the body, frequently his own, as a site for modifying and improving, just like a functioning system.” Custic is positioned inside the culture of collector dolls by three brand-new sculptures. Again, Custic thinks Parco is the perfect place to exhibit such works because Japan is the primary producer of collectible dolls.

For artists in Malaysia looking for a space to exhibit their artwork, Best Events Productions is having a Call for Artist for the Horizon Art Fair planned in July at Avenue K Shopping Mall, Kuala Lumpur.

Here is a little more information about the event. The Horizon Art Fair Kuala Lumpur (HAFKL) with the 2023 theme “Nurturing Nature” is the first interactive art show produced by Best Events Productions.

The Horizon Art Fair was created to raise awareness about the beauty of nature and the need to preserve the environment through traditional and mixed modern and digital art.
