Exhibition “To Become Two” and Salon in the Netherlands
Our former fellow Alex Martinis Roe’s exhibition “To Become Two” is co-presented by Casco – Office for Art, Design and Theory and If I Can’t Dance, I Don’t Want To Be Part Of Your Revolutions in the Netherlands.
“To Become Two” is an exhibition that brings together six films from artist Alex Martinis Roe’s long-term research project that traces the genealogy of “feminist new materialist” and “sexual difference” theories through her engagement with different international feminist communities and their political practices, historically and today. The six films are presented in a modular architectural installation designed with Fotini Lazaridou-Hatzigoga that allows for multiple encounters within the exhibition and speaks to the project’s trajectory: commenced in 2014, To Become Two also includes workshops, performances, and an artist’s book, and will later travel onwards to ar/ge kunst, Bolzano, and The Showroom, London.
Opening: 19 November 2016, 3–6pm, artist floor talk at 3:15pm
Exhibition: 20 November 2016 to 29 January 2017
