Side-expo: ‘Venus’ masks
On Tuesday June 23rd Framer Framed hosted the amazing performance event VENUS – The anti-hero Hero, on the history of black bodies and representation in art. Our exhibition space was alive with discussion, music, performances and… art by Shertise Solano and Ronald De Graaff.
Shertise Solano and Ronald De Graaff created a series of beautiful masks especially for the Venus performance directed by Milone Reigman. The event was part of the exciting programme Perspectives, a series of public events curated by Amal Alhaag in the context of the exhibition Embodied Spaces (2015). We really liked the masks and thought it was an amazing addition to the running exhibition. Therefore, Shertise Solano’s masks are on display in the Tolhuistuin hallway downstairs, from Friday 3rd July! Feel free to come view them during the runtime of the exhibition Embodied Spaces, until July 26th, 2015.
