with Ruqaiya Al Balushi, Rawan Al MahrouqiSafa BaluchiRiham Noor Al Zadjali and Elina Brotherus

This public talk is the culmination of an intense two-week artist residency in Oman, which is a key element of an eight-month programme of production, mentoring and exchange for four early career artists from Oman – Ruqaiya Al Balushi, Rawan Al MahrouqiSafa BaluchiRiham Noor Al Zadjali – commissioned to produce new works responding to the theme resonance.

For the past five months, the four commissioned artists  have been developing ideas for their new works through a series of scores. Each month, they received from Elina Brotherus a very short instruction based on Fluxus event scores and other written instructions for performance-oriented art from the 1950s-70s to respond to. The  scores included works by VALIE EXPORT, Henning Christiansen, Rémy Zaugg and Yoko Ono.

The artists will share some work-in-progress and discuss the process of working together over the past few months.

Free and open to all


Resonance is a series of new works commissioned by The Wapping Project, London. The project is a collaboration with Stal Gallery, Muscat and is generously supported by the British CouncilDCMS and GREAT through the UK-Gulf exhibition programme.
