Exhibition, Outside the Soup

Outside the Soup

Initiated by Afra Eisma, Hend Samir

The exhibition Outside the Soup, initiated by artists Afra Eisma and Hend Samir, emphasizes the potential of art to create new worldviews through radical imagination and artistic experimentation; placing care, solidarity, and trust at the forefront. Rather than building on a conceptual framework as the underpinning for the exhibition, the role of mutual and reciprocal relationships within the artistic ecosystem takes center stage.

Outside the Soup brings together a large and diverse international group of artists who create narrative-based, highly visual works steeped in imagination. The exhibition will be activated through an extensive context- and community program of workshops and guided tours.

With work by Soad Abdelrasoul, Kenneth Aidoo, Dagmar Bosma, Afra Eisma, Esraa Elfeky, Tessa Mars, Marzia Migliora, Hiroki Miura, Rah Naqvi, Karin Iturralde Nurnberg, Hend Samir, Afrah Shafiq, Meenakshi Thirukode, Marnix van Uum and Debbie Young.

Visual identity by Sheona Turnbull.
