KMOV: “Transparencies: Records of a Journey Traveled”
Exhibition Opening: 20:00,6/Sep/2008
TCG Nordica-UP-Gallery space
KMOVstudios is a creative multi-media engine that has, since 2002, been involved in service-oriented media projects. Our focus is to use our gifts in various projects for the benefit of friends and family worldwide. Such works include music videos and filmmaking in Chicago’s inner-city neighborhoods, public murals in New Mexico and Guizhou, art collaborations and education with secondary and elementary school students via music, film, and painting; also shorts and documentaries, web design, illustration, and music recording.
KMOVstudios views art and media first as a gift, and second as an offering: we reap of our experience, and present the best of these multimedia “crops” with joy and thanksgiving. Our work represents a journey, both personal and generational. We are vessels, full of good things received from our fathers and mothers; art is a link, a powerful instrument for communication with the next generation. We seek to be a part of the dialogue that connects the Source to the future…and one who drinks water ought to remember the source.

“Transparencies: records of a journey traveled” includes the works of KMOVstudios’ friends from Beijing, Guizhou, and Yunnan. Transparency is a quality of something that allows light to pass through it, so that objects behind can be distinctly seen. This idea is the hinge upon which the responses to our individual journeys in this exhibit swing. These photographs and paintings are the responses of people on the road, passing through vestiges of culture and society, and witness to the timeless things experienced through an ephemeral present.
