Art Review: Sonder ii

Sonder— “the realization that each random passerby is living a life as lucid and complex as your own”—is both the inspiration and vision of Emma and Carolyn’s project.

Emma and Carolyn sought to showcase works by young artists that offered something of this truth, and the result was a revelation of the unique lives of over 50 artists. The opening reception for Sonder ii—their second exhibit after the success of their first in 2017—was held March 9 on Orchard Street.

Sonder seeks to destroy the notion of ageism, held by so many both in and out of the art world. Young artists are often dismissed, their works disregarded, merely based on their young age. The exhibit proves that despite age, the works of these young artists are as profound and revealing as any other.
