Director’s statement

The role of the curator and critic can be compared to that of a gardener. The gardener spreads the seeds at the right times, and raises the flowers and trees. They keep a close watch on whether the plants are healthy, making sure it is without any ails or pests. They give them the right amount of fertilizer, and rid them of any unwanted weeds. They trim the branches of the trees so they may grow in beauty. They do not procrastinate on gathering the new seeds and storing them. The Gardener does not stop at their own satisfaction, but pours effort to insure that the garden is loved by many.

Just as the seasoned gardener tends to his garden after years of their own experience and knowledge, the curator and critic also need their own integrity and handle on art. But the gardeners who tend to the so called garden that is art aren’t just curators or critics. Those who love art and those who support it also contribute their share in helping the gardener successfully raise the garden that is art.

It would be a great delight for more people to lend their caring hand in keeping and ensuring this beautiful garden of art.
