The Mosaic Rooms is pleased to announce In the shade of the sun, a group exhibition contemplating the relationship between politics and aesthetics by an exciting new generation of Palestinian artists; comprising new multimedia installations by Mona Benyamin, Xaytun Ennasr and Dina Mimi as well as a new sonic performance commission by Makimakkuk.
Working across mediums that include film, installation, music and gaming, In the shade of the sun brings together artists that are forging a new language to think about and with Palestine. Their individual practices intertwined through making works for future times within the crisis of the present, in soft expressions and radical politics, from the absurd to the poetic.
This group of artists is brought together by artists Ruanne Abou-Rahme & Basel Abbas as part of their Bilna’es (in the negative) project, a platform that seeks to expand the bounds of collaboration through an adisciplinary approach.
Independent researcher and curator Adam HajYahia has been specially invited by Bilna’es to contribute a text to the exhibition and will be co-curating the exhibition’s accompanying public programme.
