2021 PLANNED EXHIBITIONS - CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER
16 April - 10 July, Gallery Yes, Poznań Poland
"The VOICE OF WOMEN is probably one of the most important exhibitions in the history of YES Gallery. Certainly, it is also extremely important for the entire goldsmithing community. What is its purpose? What does it communicate ? Who will take part in it? "The Voice of Women" is the only such project that deliberately and with full responsibility aims to present an exclusively female point of view of the world, people, art and emotions. The invitation to the project was accepted by over 60 artists who will present nearly 120 objects, mainly in the field of goldsmithing. And although the idea for this project was born much earlier, it (unfortunately) fits perfectly into the current social and political events, which even. "The Voice of Women" is therefore an exhibition about women, dedicated to women."
24 April - 20 June Trafo Kunsthall, Asker Norway
"Østlandsutstillingen 2021 exhibition shows recent works by 47 contemporary artists and artist groups selected from an impressive record number of 811 applications in 2021. We can reveal that many artists have been affected by the last year's state of emergency. It is reflected in works that show the tension between the domestic, the private and the large public space that is becoming increasingly confusing. The vulnerable landscape, anchoring through the hand's work and works that enter into a dialogue with art history are other characteristics of the exhibition. We promise a strong exhibition, enjoy! Opening at Trafo Kunsthall in Asker April 24!"
