Conversation 10 Nov

Time 10 Nov, 19-21:30 hrs


The collaborative project by zhu hong (1975, french, born in china) and sylvie bonnot (1982, french) is the first in the series making things happen.

Both artists use multiple techniques in their work (painting, drawing, and installations) with photographic material as a point of departure and idiosyncratic return. The show is organized as a visual dialogue of individual works. At the center is ephemeral wall art created by each artist as a reflection on a common image. Discussion moderated by marsha plotnitsky, founding artistic director of the merchant house, an art space/gallery rooted in the canal topography of amsterdam and running an extensive public program since 2012.
