14 December 4pm
Al Inshirah Street
Sultanate of Oman
with Ruqaiya Al Balushi, Rawan Al Mahrouqi, Safa Baluchi, Riham 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 Mahrouqi, Safa Baluchi, Riham 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
