Manifesta launches the group exhibition Dialogues, by Lumen Travo Gallery, at its headquarters on Herengracht 474. This will mark the 7th edition of Manifesta's in-house exhibitions. Featuring nine artists from the gallery, the show finds its starting point in the contrast between the contemporary identity of Lumen Travo and the historical past of the Manifesta HQ building. 

The gallery decided to approach this unique location in a pro-positive way by highlighting the unexpected connections, rather than differences, arising from the dialogue between the art and the space. Here the works leave their comfort zone to inhabit a building whose historical background appears far from them. In this whimsical juxtaposition, new combinations emerge. 

The result is a unique "conversation" that goes beyond time, space, colour and materials. By placing together both old and contemporary, Eastern and Western, fancy and poor, the artworks and location find their common ground in delicate details and unexpected similarities that appear little by little throughout the show. 

In this cultural exchange, the initial contract becomes the strength of the exhibition rather than its weakness - offering new meanings and fresh perspectives. 

Participating artists: 
Georges Adéagbo, Tiong Ang, Atousa Bandeh, Yvonne Dröge Wendel, Meschac Gaba, Ni Haifeng, Monali Meher, Otobong Nkanga, Jens Pfeifer and Unda Foundation.
