Red Brick Talk: Rituals of Signs and Metamorphosis

Red Brick Talk: Rituals of Signs and Metamorphosis

Curated by Tarek Abou El Fetouh at the Red Brick Art Museum, “Rituals of Signs and Metamorphosis” presents works by ten renowned artists from different corners of the Asian continent and situates their work between historical and contemporary systems of thinking, which allows the unexpected, the unknown and the mysterious to appear.  The works of Ho Tzu Nyen, Hu Xiaoyuan, Anish Kapoor, Tomoko Kashiki, Jawshing Arthur Liou, Taus Makhacheva, Park Chan-Kyong, Walid Raad, Chair Siris and Apichatpong Weerasethakul are displayed along an imagined ritual path of concepts and forms, materials and mediums, gestures and actions, and explore different expressions of metamorphoses; a poetic journey that leads us to question the certainty of narratives, evokes reflections and ideas, and the desire to seek out divinatory signs.

On the occasion of opening of the exhibition “Rituals of Signs and Metamorphosis” at the Red Brick Art Museum, a preliminary conference will be held alongside. As of late March 2019 another day-long conference will be organized, to coincide with the launch of the first Chinese language issue of e-flux journal.
