LAS VEGAS : Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art (BGFA), located at Bellagio Resort & Casino will unveil its new exhibition, Primal Water, on June 29. The Exhibition will celebrate the beauty and diversity of Japanese culture.
Midori Nishizawa, the independent curator of the exhibition, has carefully selected the collection by using water as a motif to connect an array of distinct contemporary Japanese works.
Primal Water includes 28 works in various forms, including painting, sculpture, photography, site-specific installation and film. The 14 featured artists span over four generations, will display the theme of water in different ways.
“Life revolves around water, and regions with an abundance of water fostered the growth of civilization around the globe. Las Vegas, having prospered as an oasis in the desert, has a meaningful connection with this theme,” said Midori Nishizawa. “These artworks allow us to contemplate water as the source of life and the dangers of its depletion. Featuring such artworks in Primal Water draws attention to the preciousness of water.”
