"CLAIMING OTHER ART HISTORIES"

On Saturday 31 August at 2 pm l'm super excited about being in conversation with Gaëtane Verno, Director of The Power Plant, Toronto.
The conversation will be moderated by curator Irene Campolmi.


About:
In the complexity of the current postcolonial discourses,
where hegemonic narratives tend to divide rather
than unite, it is critical to produce and reproduce
cultures of narration, visibility, and accessibility - what
Baldwin refers to as “kingdoms which we live in”. These
discourses should imagine another kind of freedom
that empowers differences in postcolonial discourse to
emerge.

"REWRITING HISTORY"

 
On Sunday 1 September at 2 pm I'm looking much forward to my talk with Lotte Juul Petersen, Director of Rønnebæksholm, Næstved.
 
For this event I will be presenting a selection of works leading into discussions about History, coloniality and the possibility for empowerment and healing through honoring legacies of resistance in the African diaspora.

"FLAG - OBJECT, ICON, SYMBOL "
 
I'm happy to announce my participation in the exhibition FLAG - object, icon, symbol, at Randers Kunstmuseum, which opened earlier this month, running through 12 January 2020.

The exhibition FLAG - object, icon, symbol marks the 800th anniversary of the legend of the world's oldest national flag, Dannebrog.
The exhibition focuses on the flag in art from 1960 until today. From Sven Dalsgaard's (DK, 1914-1999) Dannebrog works that created a scandal in Paris in 1967, to Chinese artist Ai Weiwe's (CN, 1957) latest political flagship on the flow of refugees across national borders. In addition, a large number of new "flag works" by renowned Danish and international artists are displayed.
Participating artists:


MIKKEL CARL (DK), CLAUS CARSTENSEN (DK), ISMAR CIRKINAGIC (BA/DK), SVEN DALSGAARD (DK), GARDAR EIDE EINARSSON (NO), JEANNETTE EHLERS (DK), THIERRY GEOFFROY/COLONEL (FR/DK), POUL GERNES (DK), JOHN GERRARD (IE), GUDRUN HASLE (DK), HESSELHOLDT & MEJLVANG (DK), PETER HOLST HENCKEL (DK), SUPERFLEX (DK), LARS VON TRIER (DK), AI WEIWEI (CN).

 

Hoping to see you around

Cheers!


Jeannette
