Non Native Native (NNN) is excited to announce the launch event of the upcoming NON NATIVE NATIVE FAIR, a multidisciplinary gathering aimed at bringing together Asian cultural practitioners from diverse backgrounds and disciplines to participate in an experimental trade fair environment. This year’s fair will take place between 14 and 16 July 2023, in partnership with Framer Framed.

Non Native Native is a cultural platform which looks into the diasporic Asian creative landscape in the Netherlands through the lens of outsiders from within. It serves as an alternative space for critical creatives practising between the Asian and European cultural landscapes, with a particular focus on contemporary visual culture.

The second edition of the NNNFAIR aims to explore the intricate relationship between magic and monetary value, where spirituality and materiality intersect, and socio-political issues emerge. Through the NNNFAIR open call happening throughout the month of April, the fair looks for exhibitors with projects that investigate the concepts of Asian philosophies, spiritualities, and superstitions, with intangible value that can be translated into exchangeable goods. This could take the form of artworks, publications, products, services, performances, crowdfunding projects, or anything that can be presented as a subject of market exchange, an alternative narrative, and a tool for deepening dialogues on Asia in relation to the theme, PRO$PERITY NOW!

Register here.
