drawing series Hatterman’s Hand, after Arbeider (Neger) 1939
The event was accompanied by a live interview by Nancy Hoffmann.
Plus the publication of a conversation between Mirjam Westen and Marieke Zwart about Nola Hatterman’s work.
The Ongoing Conversation II offered a series of fast-paced one-day exhibitions conceived as a platform to show and share the interest of ongoing artistic research.
In the seven short exhibitions, the seven graduating students of MAR freezed the momentum of their artistic research process to create a decisive entry into the end phase of their explorations. Stringed together over the course of one month, these milestones created a combined itinerary. The exhibitions bring you past sites of contaminated mushrooms, a hot bedroom in Curacao, a reflection on religious power at the European Parliament, a playful ritual, an unfolding of emptiness, a reconstruction of a conceptual architecture from the past and axiological dilemma’s in art and commerce.
This project was the outcome of a collaboration between 1646 and the Master Artistic Research, The Hague.
Participating artists: Pierfrancesco Gava, Grigoris Rizakis, Arefeh Riahi, Ewoud van Rijn, Sissel marie Tonn, Anne-Marie Twigge, and Marieke Zwart
The Master Artistic Research is a master programme for artists, based at the Royal Academy of Art and the Royal Conservatoire, The Hague.
