BTS continue to expand their push to encourage audiences to think about the world around them through art with the launch of their new 'Connect, BTS' venture, which will find them acting as patrons of a variety of art projects around the world.
"Connect, BTS is a global project to connect five cities and twenty-two artists, each of whom contributes their unique philosophy and imagination to it,” reads an introductory statement on the project's website. “This project aims to redefine the relationships between art and music, the material and immaterial, artists and their audiences, artists and artists, theory and practice. Connect, BTS may be described in terms of a collective curatorial practice by curators around the world who resonated with BTS' philosophy."
Galleries in London, Berlin, Buenos Aires, Seoul, and New York will host artistic events throughout January until the end of March. The 'Connect, BTS' project kicked off today (Jan. 14) at London's Serpentine Galleries with the launch of "Catharsis" by Jakob Kudsk Steensen, which will run through March 6. A show in Berlin will open on Wednesday (Jan. 15), followed by one in Buenos Aires on Jan. 21, another in Seoul will on Jan. 28 and the final show in New York on Feb. 5.
