The Limbo exhibition will take place 4 May – 2 June 2019 at SEAS (Socially Engaged Art Salon). The show will include series of workshops, film screenings and artist talks by the exhibiting artists. It is part of Artists Open House, which takes place during Brighton Festival in May. The Opening is Saturday 4 May at 3pm – 6pm.
“Limbo isn’t just the imaginary place or state of all holy souls after death, but a real space many of us have found ourselves in due to wars, Brexit, austerity, socio-economic insecurity, racism and xenophobia. Limbo space can also relate to our cultural, racial or national identities, as well as related to gender and sexuality. Limbo space is challenging but at times, as a space in-between, also liberating,” says Gil Mualem-Doron, curator of the Limbo show.
SEAS (Socially Engaged Art Salon) will show visual & performing artworks that depict Limbo conditions, situations and places. The SEAS advisory team will curate the exhibition of works in any art media (painting, photography, sculpture, installation, new media art, sound art and performing arts).
