[postponed] Visual Storytellers

Thu 2 December
→ Sun 12 December
Free Entrance

Hosted by: ROSE stories

‘Visual Storytellers: Filling In What Was Left Out’ is the result of a talent development program by ROSE stories for (aspiring) designers and makers with a diverse signature or a strong affinity with other cultures and stories. The results are presented in an exhibition.

Through master classes, individual and professional coaching, ROSE stories creates space for artistic development with an emphasis on visual storytelling and stimulates cultural entrepreneurship.

Bringing young artists together, ROSE stories presents Leeza Pritychenko, Miya Wang, Mohamad Zul Ghina, Omar Abdellatif, Samira El Kaddouri, Silvia Celiberti, Karima Choukeri and Mina Abouzahra. Each of them explores the art practice of visual storytelling in their own way, using photo, film, illustration, fashion, design, VR and typography. The exhibition is curated by Malikka Bouaissa.

The artists are new storytellers in their own right, with a unique ability to convey narratives through visual art and digital media. Some of the narratives evolve from personal journeys while others are more analytical or theoretical in approach, but all the works tell stories that are as personal as they are universal. Touching different topics such as mental health and sexuality via different media brings all the work together into an exhibition that can be read and enjoyed on a variety of different levels. Reading between the lines of these works, you are invited to discover what shapes this exhibition into visual storytelling at its best.
