Exit 11 Performing Arts Company will exhibit the work of ten emerging international artists at TAC, Vonderweg1, on 27 – 29 January, following the conclusion of its second Virtual Collaborative Program for Emerging Artists (VICE).
10 emerging artists
The exhibition, titled Peripheries, is a collection of works created by artists collaborating remotely, across eleven different countries, and curated over the course of two years. This collection explores the tensions between intimacy and alienation, the personal and geographical, as well as real and enacted realities. Using a combination of mediums, including photography, poetry, video, game design, and augmented reality, the artists embrace the cross-border, digital nature of their collaboration to interrogate location, language, and identity.
