Join us on November 16 from 6 PM until 8 PM for the opportunity to meet some of the artists behind our current international group exhibition “un/mute”. For one night only, visitors will have the chance to gain insight from creators behind the artworks and learn about the creative processes that brought this collaborative project to life. The evening will also feature four site-specific performances. 

Some of the artists participating include Gabrielė Gervickaitė (Lithuania), Saddie Choua (Flanders), Olesja Katšanovskaja-Münd (Estonia), Sheila Maldonado (NYC), Luisa Muhr (Austria), Barbara Maria Neu (Austria) and Ada van Hoorebeke (Flanders), with more artists to be announced at a later date.

About the Exhibition:

On view at the ACFNY through January 7, 2022, “un/mute” is the culmination of two online residencies launched in 2020 to provide European and NYC-based artists an opportunity for critical exchange and collaboration during the COVID-19 global pandemic. 

Co-curated by Daina Mattis and Melinda Wang, “un/mute” is the physical manifestation of online conversations among strangers who became collaborators. What began as abstract and digital are now 14 tactile, concrete artworks presented across two locations. The exhibition features sculptures, installations, films, drawings, photographs, and performances created by artists who confronted the parameters imposed by the lockdowns and found creative solutions that we might all learn from. 

“un/mute” is a project by Undercurrent and the following members of EUNIC NY - European Union National Institutes for Culture: Austrian Cultural Forum New York, Czech Center New York, Consulate General of Estonia in New York, Delegation of Flanders to the USA, Goethe-Institut New York, Lithuanian Culture Institute, Arts Council Malta in New York, Polish Cultural Institute New York and Romanian Cultural Institute. This project is also supported by EUNIC Global, the European Union Delegation to the United Nations, Hope Recycling Station and Jindřich Chalupecký Society.

Open hours: ACFNY, 10am-6pm daily; Undercurrent, 1-7pm Thursday-Sunday; free admission
