Group show “Late Barbarians”

(London, UK) Focusing on the notion of corporeal memory, the group exhibition “Late Barbarians” explores how shifting social codes and cultural values have been embodied in canonical Western European art and architecture. The exhibition takes its title from an expression by German sociologist Norbert Elias, which suggests that our future descendants may eventually consider us to have lived during an extended medieval period, implying that we share far greater affinities with our Barbarian forefathers than we might like to think.

“Imagine Brazil” | Last days

(Olso, Norway) “Imagine Brazil” will showcase Brazilian contemporary art, with particular focus on the young, emerging art scene. This is the fourth exhibition in the series focusing on a country’s art scene. From Brazil’s rich and complex artistic landscape, the selected artists are proposing a new artistic language in order to develop important and urgent subject matter. Young artists who have dived into the multitude of possibilities offered by conceptually based works, including painting, sculpture, installation, photography, video and music.
