new artspace in Kuwait

“Many people think artists are slightly crazy. But the fact is, they are normal, surrounded by insane lunatics who are constantly at war with one another.”

Admir Jahic

The title is: "you tube- Broadacst yourself! Meets Middle eastern Pop Icons" by Cormenius Roethlisberger and Admir Jahic.
The exhibition is proudly presented by the Al Sabah Art &Design in conjuncture with Kuwait Art Foundation at the Corniche club until the 9th of April 09.
On the invitation was written: "The resulting collection is both distressing and humorous in its ability to highlight our often-conditioned predilection of Arabian stardom."
what a program!
distressing: surely! as this type of art, presented in Maimi art basel Fair and in prestigious galleries of New York and Switzerland, is way beyond what is usually presented in the local scene.
Thank you Sheikh Majed for bringing over destabilizing and not easily understood art. The challenge will be: more homework and eventually get it...
