We are faced with a new kind of difficulty. We have two contradictory pictures of reality; separately neither of them fully explains the phenomena of light, but together they do.
- Albert Einstein and Leopold Infeld,
The Evolution of Physics, 1938, on wave-particle duality
Ronald Feldman Fine Arts will present Wave & Particle, a group exhibition of more than two dozen Creative Capital Awardees, in celebration of the organization's 15th anniversary. In general, the artists in the exhibition address contemporary issues surrounding conditions that might be rectified, and the selection of artworks embraces the notion of synthesizing contradictory elements. Using the principle of wave-particle duality in quantum physics as a metaphor, the exhibition muses on how one might describe or consider objects that can be read in more than one way.
The exhibition presents a wide range of media including videos, sculptures, readymades, prints, photographs, floor works, ceiling hangings, and objects that incorporate electronics and light. The works tell jokes, breathe, induce altered states, invite spiritual contemplation, or call us to political action.
Wave & Particle represents a very small sample of the artists working in the disciplines of Visual Arts, Performing Arts, Moving Image, Literature and Emerging Fields that Creative Capital has supported over the years. Special thanks to Sean Elwood, Director of Programs & Initiatives at Creative Capital, for curating the exhibition.
