kendell geers curates exhibition as part of 'newtopia' in mechelen, belgium

1 September 2012
Newtopia, curated by Katerina Gregos, builds on the long relationship between art and human rights and aims to explore the numerous aspects associated with the issue.
Newtopia will take place in various cultural institutions and the urban context of the historic Flemish city of Mechelen - a city whose roots go back to the humanistic tradition of Erasmus and Thomas Moore thus providing an apt context for the exhibition.

There is also a curated exhibition within the exhibition itself; South African, Brussels-based artist Kendell Geers decided to open up his solo invitation to NEWTOPIA and invite guests and friends to share their personal visions and interpretations of the complex subject of human rights. His project includes, among others, Marina Abramovic, Barbara Kruger, Ilya & Emilia Kabakov, Nedko Solakov, and Zapiro.

The exhibition runs until 10 December 2012.
