Kasmin. Protean. Online Viewing Room. May 18–June 8, 2020

Protean brings together a selection of post-war and contemporary works that explore the primordial development of both language and physical being. The presentation’s title takes its name from the shape-shifting Greek sea god, Proteus, who came to be regarded as a symbol of the original matter from which the world was created. Alluding to the dawning of life and guided by metaphysical reference, the presentation invites contemplation on the ways in which artists continue to grapple with ontological inquiry.
