All in One is the first exhibition to be opened at the Kate Oh Gallery. Curated by contemporary Tibetan artist Pema Rinzin, the selection of work reflects the gallery’s mission: to be inclusive and international. The sense of community is strong within the choicen artists, many of whom have shown or worked together in the past and who are connected through their shared respect for traditional materials and mutual desire to bring elements of various traditions into the contemporary moment.
The title of the exhibition also speaks to the camaraderie of artists who come together to uplift and honor each other’s work. For Rinzin, the notion of community resonates deeply on personal and philosophical levels. Throughout the ups and downs of his artistic journey, which has spanned three continents, the people who gave him hope and support were artists. Now, as this country faces deep division and a government that aims to incite fear and distrust, it is urgent to strengthen and listen to our diverse communities of artists. Those in this exhibition range broadly in degrees of renown and nationality, but they share a singular defining trait; each has cultivated an inner voice, an inner vision, which compels them to create their work, regardless of the circumstances.
