Exhibition: ‘Kamarado’

Sawangwongse Yawanghwe, Yawanghwe Office in Exile, 2015, SMBA.

Kamarado, a curatorial collaboration between Amsterdam and Bombay, brings together a diverse group of artists from various regions of the world. The conceptual core around which all these individual voices and artistic practices revolve is the idea of the comrade, a term that originally meant “one who shares the same room.”

With new commissions by Adrian Melis, Amol K Patil, Jeronimo Voss, Sharelly Emanuelson, Sawangwongse Yawnghwe, and Sosa Joseph, in addition to “cues” by Htein Lin, Judy Blum Reddy, Mieke Van de Voort, Paolo Chiasera, and Rupali Patil.

Co-curated by Zasha Colah, Jelle Bouwhuis, Sumesh Sharma & Kerstin Winking
