On Stellar Rays and Sun\Ra are pleased to announce a group exhibition Equations of Sight-Similarity. The exhibition is the first in a series of collaborations between Candice Madey of On Stellar Rays and Sunny Rahbar, co-founder of the The Third Line Gallery, Dubai and of Sun\Ra, aiming to embrace open-ended collaborations with an international group of artists. This inaugural exhibition will take place at On Stellar Rays from January 12 to February 23.
Equations of Sight-Similarity is an excerpt from “Cosmic Equation,” a poem by the musician and mystic Sun Ra whose unconventional philosophy created connections between the experience of the individual and the cosmos. The exhibition presents works that explore various perceptions of time and space and question our ability to accurately perceive our present situation as individuals. Otherworldly, cosmic, and arithmetic references offer alternative vantage points and knowledge potential, placing a poetic emphasis on human and social interconnectivity.
