Opening | Get Well Soon
Friday 19 April at 20.00
Roodkapje Rotterdam, Delftseplein 39
Free Entrance

On Friday 19 April, the exhibition Get Well Soon opens at Roodkapje Rotterdam during Motel Mozaique Festival.

Making their way to a speedy recovery, the artists-in-residence of the Hamburger Community of Art and fashion designer Nada van Dalen invite you to share in on their month’s efforts of making do, staying with the trouble, and finding common ground with material.

From inflatable suits to jellied fruits and designs of misinterpretation, Get Well Soon thinks and acts from basements and underbellies, spanning self-care and the carefree, placing the body on the line. Ultimately it asks: can the right stitch count take us somewhere better? Working together from a multitude of perspectives, ideas and infatuations, Get Well Soon might be read as a get well soon card, a signal of pain or a manifesto-as-zine.

Get well soon,

Jeisson Drenth, Clementine Edwards, Mylan Hoezen, Adam Patterson, Vlada Predelina and Nada van Dalen.

The Hamburger Community of Art (HCA) is a yearlong development program for emerging artists based on the principles of experimentation, collaboration and developing new artistic practices. What can artists learn from each other? How can (young) artists stimulate their development collectively? What can society learn from artists and vice versa?

NADA VAN DALEN is a socially engaged rebellious fashion label that is always searching for the boundaries in ready-to-wear. The label does not work in seasons, but in smaller and bigger collections in different themes.
