54 Rozenstraat | a rose is a rose is a rose
- Rozenstraat 59
The new project space ROZENSTRAAT – a rose is a rose is a rose emerged from a necessity to protest against the downfall of independent project spaces in Amsterdam. After the closure of Stedelijk Museum Bureau Amsterdam (SMBA) a few Amsterdam art professionals took over the space to maintain it as an exhibition platform for experimental contemporary art. To ensure the artistic infrastructure in these times of continuing budget cuts and political uncertainty it’s important to join forces and create new initiatives and nourish new ideas.
Exhibition ‘Interwoven Histories’, 4 Sept-24 Oct
ROZENSTRAAT is proud to host Interwoven Histories by Touch/Trace, curated by Christel Vesters. The exhibition explores the intricate connections between textile and marginalised histories through the lens of contemporary art. The exhibition shows works by artists who each in their own way engage with textile as medium and mediator, to (re)tell the narratives of movement and migration, of protest and emancipation, of labour, care, and repair, of political turmoil and resistance, combined with personal memories. Along the edges Interwoven Histories probes the ways in which we read and write ‘history’, proposing a concept of history as a multi-layered fabric consisting of different and at times conflicting threads and of entanglements that continue to shape our realities today.
With works by: Mounira Al Solh, Fatima Barznge, Feministische Handwerk Partij, Antonio José Guzman & Iva Jankovic, Patricia Kaersenhout, Mila Lanfermeijer, Jennifer Tee, Vincent Vulsma, and Sheila Hicks.
The exhibition will be accompanied by a public programme and catalogue.
