Commenced in 2019, Read the Room is an expanded literary practice space that encourages experimental writing, both on and off the page. Co-directed by Melbourne based visual artist Carmen-S Keiso and writer Kat Capel, Read the Room functions as a liaising hub for various practitioners interested in pursuing the literary form, particularly those working on the fringe of the artistic industry. We host ongoing writing workshops, experimental lectures, exhibitions and reading events independently and in collaboration with other artist-bodies. We are dedicated to both challenging and fostering a community of expanded-literary-practice within Melbourne. We are best reached via our email address email@example.com or via our instagram @readtheroom_
Sumac Space was founded in 2020 as a non-profit platform presenting contemporary art from the Middle East through digital programs, critical writing and research. Devoted to the Middle East and its thriving contemporary art, we work with artists and curators, who address contemporary urgencies in the context of the challenging social and political circumstances of the region. Seeking new ways of experiencing art through digital modalities, Sumac Space experiments with rethinking the existing forms of art presentation and looks for meaningful uses of digital communication to meet, to relate, to be together. By experimenting with different methods, we search for ways to stimulate subjective imagination and critical relation against the currents of the attention economy and incessant excess of digital representation. Alongside exploring our programs, such as digital Exhibitions, Sumac Space invites viewers to explore Artists’ Rooms and Dialogues. Artists’ Rooms are digital architectures curated entirely by artists themselves that are here to allow for connecting with the artists’ thinking process and research, beyond actual artworks. We believe that art practice is so much more than final works and therefore our aim is to disclose what is formative and proliferates artists’ practice on different levels. If Artists’ Rooms is primarily […]

Viafarini is a creative incubator and a hub for visual arts located at Fabbrica del Vapore, collaborating with other renowned organizations in Milan, in Italy and abroad. Viafarini has been founded in 1991 as a non-profit organization for contemporary art, when this concept was new to Italy. Nowadays Viafarini is renovating its mission: starting from the idea of a creative incubator aiming at the professional training of emerging artists within the art system, it is shifting toward the idea of an agency for the creation of networks of collaboration between artistic research, private commission, entrepreneurship and the social environment. Viafarini’s know-how about documentation, art consultancy, production, residency, education, communication and exhibition services are put at disposal for interdisciplinary collaboration projects. The benefits guaranteed by this innovative approach reverberates not only on the single artist’s career, but on the society itself. Thanks to this hybrid, participative and multidisciplinary approach Viafarini innovates its cultural offer in order to understand the implications of the great change under way: from an artistic as well as social, political and anthropological point of view.

Antonia Breme – V (Virtus)
In her sculptural work Antonia Breme deals with display elements in the context of store window displays. She examines the artistic practice of designing window displays as an alternative means of income and, in this context, addresses the question of the so-called “money job“, that many artists perform in addition to their artistic work. In this way, she reflects on her own position in the tension between artistic autonomy and economic necessity. The exhibited sculptures and objects were originally designed for a window display of the fashion label Weather Underground to present its biodegradable rain capes. In the context of the exhibition V (Virtus), they obtain independence and at the same time refer to their original function. The installative setting makes Antonia Breme’s artistic process visible as well as her handling of different materials and surfaces. At the same time, the work on display remains flexible and expandable and exists in this form only for the duration of the exhibition. www.antoniabreme.com HilbertRaum Reuterstraße 31 12047 Berlin 22.10.-31.10.2021 Soft Opening 22.10.2021, 6-10 pm Opening hours: Opening Fridays 6-10 pm Other Fridays 4-7 pm Saturday + Sunday 2-7 pm Curated by: Hannah van Ginkel
Designing Dreams in the Dark
Hombre, blanco, cis: una etnografía de la blanquitud – Lucía Egaña Rojas
October 14th – November 5th 2021, Tangent Projects gallery. Opening reception Thursday October 14th, 5 – 8:30pm. The “map of books” that we have read, come from, at most, ten countries in the world. Almost all of these books are concentrated in the US, Canada, and some parts of Europe. These books, and countries, are full of institutions, fraternities of science and knowledge, and Nobel laureates. These spaces are inhabited by white cis-gender men whose names are constantly repeated which, in turn, builds a litany of word power, speech power, and publishing power. These men tend to write a lot, but its difficult to imagine them cooking, cleaning, or caring. These White men who write, think, define and translate, ultimately dictate how the world ‘is’. Lucia Egañas Rojas has a degree in art and has completed a Diploma in Aesthetics and Contemporary Thought, a Master in Creative Documentary and a PHD in Audiovisual Communication. As an artist, she works on collaborative projects, problematising the construction of social imaginary and sources of knowledge. Her projects have been exhibited in many different spaces, museums and institutions. Her creative practices overflow, permeating many different territories such as technology, pedagogy, writing and sexuality. In […]

THE EARTH OF (3): Ruptures and Reckonings
The Program will be directed by writers Ginger Teppner and Andrew Helton. Fall 2021 | October 11 – November 20 (tbd) 2021 | Virtual Program The Earth Of: Ruptures and Reckonings is a collective virtual space of inquiry. Through writing and discourse we investigate how to manifest and inhabit the fractures that pervade our lives, allowing for the creative space to grow organically through digressions, tangents, musings, and synchronistic linkages. What does it mean when humanity crosses a threshold of such significance it manifests as a rupture, when the world is on the cusp? The brain wants to organize, filter, and separate out. Yet, beyond the confusion perpetrated by language that fails to adequately define, are spaces. We find meaning when we implicitly inhabit these spaces—gestures that guide the cracks to spread toward shattering. These moments of rupture burst forth from gesture into reckoning, exposing us to what is real and true and essential. https://www.artslettersandnumbers.com/the-earth-of-3
SUNSHIP: THESIS II at Arts Letters & Numbers
David Gersten & Homa Shojaie October 9th – November 20th, 2021 | Virtual Program Arts Letters & Numbers is pleased to announce “SunShip: Thesis II at Arts Letters & Numbers”, a six-week immersive virtual studio program led by David Gersten and Homa Shojaie. The Studio program is being held as part of “SunShip: The Arc That Makes The Flood Possible,” Arts Letters & Numbers’ exhibition in the CITYX Venice Italian Virtual Pavilion of the 17th Venice Architecture Biennale. SunShip: The Arc That Makes the Flood Possible Tens of centuries ago, trees of enormous scale were cut, trimmed, skinned of their bark, and bound together using a particularly robust fibrous rope for the construction of rafts that anticipated the crossing of the great raging seas. Although strong, this rope was not often used near the sea; salt broke down its fiber, sea salt ate away its strength. The trees were bound in such a way that the rolling motion of the sea dug the rope into the soft wood of the trees; the particular knot and binding allowed the push and pull of the sea to work the rope into deep grooves in the wood. In time, as the wood swelled […]

Intimate Textures of the Digital World
The SPAO Centre Gallery is thrilled to present Intimate Textures of the Digital World featuring the work of Gatineau-based artist AM Dumouchel, Montreal-based artist Gilles Tarabiscuité and Vancouver-based Haida artist Jaad Kuujus (Meghann O’brien). The artists in this exhibition negotiate between digital and physical spaces, continually asking viewers to orient themselves between physicality and abstraction.

Kathmandu international artists in residency (KIAR 2022)
Nepal is the Best Value Destination to travel to. Nepal’s cultural landscape is every bit as diverse as its physical one. The spectacular Himalayas comprise the highest mountains on earth and boast a surreal landscape of snow-covered peaks sure to leave a powerful impression. The Himalayan country of Nepal, situated between India and China, offers some of the best access to these mountain peaks, where landscapes vary from subtropical valleys (complete with banana trees) to alpine forests (home to grazing yaks). Customs and traditions differ from one part of Nepal to another. A conglomeration lies in the capital city, Kathmandu, where cultures are blending to form a national identity. Kathmandu Valley has served as the country’s cultural metropolis since the unification of Nepal in the 18th Century. A prominent factor in Nepali’s everyday life is religion. Adding color to the lives of Nepalese are festivals the year round which they celebrate with much pomp and joy. Food plays an important role in the celebration of these festivals. Capital is surrounded by a valley full of historic sites, ancient temples, shrines, and fascinating villages. Kathmandu is an incredibly diverse historic city with breathtaking Newari architecture, centuries-old Hindu and Buddhist religious sites. […]
