are you experienced? gathers the works of global contemporary artists who intend to activate multiple levels of viewer awareness, effecting multi-sensory and intuitive responses. Exhibiting artists Nadia Belerique, Jessica Eaton, Olafur Eliasson, Dorian FitzGerald, Hadley+Maxwell and Do Ho Suh propose distinct representations of familiar yet strange objects, events, people and places, through video, installation, sound, sculpture, photography and painting. With some political undertones, these artists ask viewers to see themselves seeing, to be transformed within an alternative environment, to think critically but with intuitive awareness, and ultimately to engage the body and mind through art.
