The Materiality of the Invisible | Bureau Europa, Maastricht
This exhibition sees contemporary art as a form of archeology: new and strange worlds are exposed by spitting in reality and underlying layers of our social, social and political reality. In discoveries, stories and installations, artists bring possible versions of the past and the future, in which the present is peeled into layers. Thus, they offer us new insights into our own reality and also make them visible what lives in the imagination.
The exhibition includes works from Lida Abdul, Sema Bekirovic, Rosella Biscotti, Marinus Boezem, Lonnie van Brummelen & Siebren de Haan, Mikhail Karikis & Uriel Orlow, Daniel Knorr, Jeroen Kooijmans, Irene, Kopelman, Guiseppe Licari, Chaim van Luit, Mark Manders, Alice Miceli, RAAF , Raewyn Martyn, Stephanie Saade, Fernando Sanchez Castillo, Oscar Santillan, Daniel Silver, Studio Ossidiana, Marjan Teeuwen, Leonid Tsetkov, Maarten Vanden Eynde, Roy Villevoye & Jan Dietvorst, Matthew C. Wilson, Martin Westwood and Joey Bryniarska.

Sharjah Biennial 13: Tamawuj | Sharjah Art Foundation, Sharjah
The thematic focus of SB13 is grounded in the four keywords water, crops, earth and culinary, which form the foundations of social interaction and exchange. Just as the thematic keywords are porous and feed into one another, SB13 places researchers and interlocutors in conversation with one another, and with Sharjah. Its multi-city, multi-part programmes are envisaged as infrastructures to channel knowledge transmission and information sharing between artists, curators, editors, researchers and the general public. This fluidity of knowledge irrigates new, enduring terrains of collaboration and references the threefold meaning of Tamawuj: a rising and falling in waves; a flowing, swelling, surging or fluctuation; and a wavy, undulating appearance, outline or form.
Sharjah Art Foundation (SAF) is pleased to announce the list of over 60 artists participating in Act I of the forthcoming Sharjah Biennial 13, Tamawuj (SB13):
