Navid Azimi Sajadi and Siavash Naghshbandi in Sumac Space
Curators: Katharina Ehrl, Davood Madadpoor
Sumac space is [an online platform] devoted to the Middle East, to give exposure to its contemporary art. In the midst of challenging social and political circumstances, the Middle East has experienced remarkable artistic reinforcement. Sumac Space addresses central questions and tackles contemporary urgencies to mirror the present through the lens of the artists involved.
We aim to show solidarity with young artists and curators by offering the possibility of creating exhibitions, raising questions and allowing differing voices to be heard. Young artists and curators can shape a part of the future; however, they need to be given a place where their works and expressions can be seen by the general public. They must be given the opportunity to do this.
Sumac Space invites people to view these exhibitions and to create an interactive dialogue, while adding an international perspective that may offer new insights and solutions for people to consider. Innovative solutions occur when “the dialogue” is made visible so that the problems and issues can be debated and solutions found Mankind shares much more than is generally credited. By offering equal opportunities for exhibiting we intend to be part of this dialogue.
