Momentarily Learning from Mega-Events

Momentarily Learning from Mega-Events, 4 Dec. 2011 - 4 Jan. 2012, Makan Art Space, Amman.
Nov 2011

Momentarily Learning from Mega-Events is an exhibition that explores priority versus urgency in art production. Questions on the position of artists and their reconditioned processes are contemplated in relation to changes in the social and political contexts. The artistic production presents itself as document of the effects of the oscillating political environment in 2011. The project does not track the impacts of mega-events in artistic presentations, but rather investigates the contemporaneity of art production itself in relation to the contexts they emerge in.

Curated by Ala Younis for Makan Art Space, it features new and existing works by:

Banu Cennetoğlu (Turkey)
Mohssin Harraki (Morocco)
Maha Maamoun (Egypt)
Evariste Richer (France)
Oraib Toukan (Jordan)
General Idea (Canada)
A lecture-dialogue in 3 parts titled: "Gardening a pitiless mountain dreamed of faraway with its owner only a passing shadow" (2011), is presented by Oraib Toukan on 10 December 2011, 4 pm at Makan.
