exhibition roskilde

The exhibition Reframing Reality - Glimpses into the Lowave video archive gathers for the first time in Denmark a number of videos from the Lowave's growing archive and provides an insight into the vibrant world of contemporary artistic creations. From the groundbreaking Resistance[s] anthologies, which put into perspective thematic video art from the Middle East and North Africa to the urban landscapes where man almost dissolves like in HC Gilje's Cityscapes or videos in the City2City collection, the exhibition highlights unknown affinities and underlying trends in the way video artists from around the world are still experimenting with the medium.

6 September – 16 November 2008, Guangdong Museum of Art, Guangzhou

exhibition middle eastern video channel

The Resistance[s] exhibition presents a selection of experimental film and video art from the Middle East and North Africa. Featuring artists from a variety of cultural and disciplinary backgrounds, these intimate, poetic and documentary works are witness to the region's complexity, vitality and diversity of creative energies. Distanced from the usual stereotypes, the artists aim to explore the existential, political and aesthetic issues of our times while opening up to new narrative perspectives that break with our media's monotonous and repetitive imagery. 


Lowave Exhibitions

Lowave has curated and produced exhibitions since 2008. Often inspired by our research projects and publications, these projects have been realised in close collaboration with international exhibition spaces. Some, such as Resistance[s] at the 3rd Triennial of Guangzhou, responded to invitations from major art events, others, more intimate, paid tribute to Lowave's unique art identity.
