Expressions of a renewed river

“Although we proposed the exhibition as a means to bring awareness to Green River, the show was also curated in the mindset that it was independent art show with a life of its own,” Hsu says.

While the exhibition clearly conveys a rich variety of artistic expressions, parts of the exhibition design were preoccupied with packaging Green River as a cultural enterprise. Along one gallery wall, big posters of artist profile photos zigzag along a line of metal scaffolding beams while the abstracted icons of the show title is repeated throughout the exhibition like an abstract corporate motif. While these elements appear quite dominating at times, they perhaps also make up the show’s commercial flair that seeks to collapse the distance between Green River and the general public.
