• Roodkapje’s Hamburger Community of Art is excited to present ‘With Open Arms’, a group exhibition with new works by Gill Baldwin, Lavinia Xausa, Rafiq Abbasov, Danielle Hoogendoorn, and Iriée Zamblé.
‘With Open Arms’ springs from the urge of the Hamburger Community artists to deal with the current challenges of making and presenting art, and to question what being part of an artist-in-residency program can contribute to face these challenges as a whole. As every day now poses new realities, we have to continuously look for new ways of relating, living, and being together. This brings a desire for hope, an anticipation towards the future, and a drive to keep going regardless of whatever limitations imposed.
As the exhibition is a fivefold attempt to speculate on what new forms of artistic practice can emerge from the current situation, the Hamburger Community artists welcome you into the future with open arms, no matter if that refers to the (im)possibility to embrace one another fully, or the spread-eagle position to demarcate an acceptable social distance. •
• Hamburger Community of Art •
The Hamburger Community of Art (HCA) is Roodkapje’s year long residency and development trajectory for young and 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? And, how can they find new and intriguing ways to connect to diverse audiences?
