“I wanted to have no preconceptions as to what would be in the exhibition. I would not make the decision. The work would make the final choices for me. It would make a strong impact, make me look again, become in some way unforgettable. It would push me into new places and offer me different and fresh perspectives.” – John Yau, Curator
“Here and Now, implies an awareness of the present, much like the name of this institution, The Center of Contemporary Art, there is a mindfulness of being contemporary. This awareness is a continuum of ideas, practices, and events that reflect what The Center for Contemporary Art has stood for these past 50 years. To paraphrase Isaac Newton, to see further we must stand on the shoulders of giants. This exhibition can only exist because of what has come before and celebrates the diverse community of artists and art that is here and now.” – Wes Sherman, Curator
