This blog informs and reflects on the exhibition OH CRISIS at Huize Frankendael in Amsterdam. The exhibition presents a view through modern art towards the actual Credit Crisis.
We're now entering what may well be the most challenging man-made calamity in modern experience, a global financial crisis of unprecedented size, speed, interconnectedness and complexity. This event, also known as the Credit Crisis is not yet determined in terms of cause and effect. Our mission is to reaffirm the power of an open view, an in depth discussion, and an exploration of the Credit Crisis through art. Because art can unveil and may be able to present a different view. This exhibit explores some reflections on the current crisis. Works of the following artists are to be seen: (amongst others) Lara Almarcegui, Jan Fabre, William Monk, David Osbaldeston, Reed Siefer, Dave Sinai, Berend Strik, Remco Torenbosch, Koen van Mechelen, Roger van de Wouwer, Jason van der Woude

ALL THAT GLITTERS
Created by Rafi Ghanaghounian, Anna Pantchev and James Gauvreau is this thought provoking art piece reflecting the economic crisis titled, ‘All That Glitters’ in gallery Keep6c Toronto, Canada.Featuring several piggy banks with glitter against a scenery of wall street, ‘All That Glitters’ explores the idea of people gaining and losing money, and how the good times can screech to a halt and become empty, as was indicated by the smashed piggy banks coated inside with glitter. There were an abundance of meanings and ideas in the piece. Unfortunately, last night was the final day to see the ‘All that Glitters’ exhibit since Rafi Ghanaghounian is closing the gallery to pursue opportunities in NYC.
