Sudan: Emergence of Singularities
24th March – 6th May 2017
P21 Gallery, London, UK
Goals / To support the diversity of cultural expressions of Sudanese artists / Promotion of gender equality in the cultural field / To promote artistic freedom and access to a diversity of artistic expressions / Investing in creativity
A season blending contemporary visual arts, theatre, music, design, films and words from and about Sudan
Sudan: Emergence of Singularities will include an interdisciplinary art exhibition, film screenings, talks and events that expose a mix of voices and new perspectives for understanding the Sudanese society and cultures with maximum freedom of expression.
Sudan: Emergence of Singularities is the first and most exciting Sudanese contemporary art exhibition in the UK and in the heart of London Kings Cross from established and emerging artists, writers and intellectuals as well as special guests whose works are related to Sudan. The show will stage an unprecedented and rich artistic portrait of Sudan on an international scale.
Curated by Frederique Cifuentes, the programme will examine the artistic development of a country, which is often ignored by the general media, art critics and galleries in the UK and worldwide and unknown to the general public.
Artists and intellectuals are the best source to understand the social dynamics of a country. Sudan: Emergence of Singularities is a tribute to the vitality and diversity of a country and its people who deserve a brighter tomorrow.
Sudan: Emergence of Singularities has the important task of presenting and fostering creativity, expectations, prospects and achievements from one of the most challenging social and political environments in the world. Sudan’s creatives have been isolated from the rest of the region and the international literary and artistic scenes for decades.
