Opening tomorrow! Join us for a drink

Tomorrow at LhGWR in The Hague, our Divas will be shown during the exhibition Somehow, somewhat in the middle of things.

Curated in collaboration with Hester Keijser (Empty Quarter Gallery, Dubai), LhGWR presents a group exhibition with a remarkable international line-up, pairing work from both a non-Western and a Western background. At the heart of the exhibit lie a shared search for identity and the struggle for a place within society, challenging the boundaries that politics or social conventions has set. Point of departure has been the work of Mary Sibande (ZA) and Julia Gunther (DE), who both bring the role of black women in South Africa into view. Based on association, the line-up for the exhibition expanded to seven artists from a generation that has grown up to navigate with ease in a world gone global, hybrid, fragmented, and open to re-appropriation.

Participating artists: Mary Sibande, Newsha Tavakolian, Larissa Sansour, Waheeda Malullah, Pinar & Viola, Iris Vetter, Julia Gunther
