This event has ended.

The International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) announces Maja Bekan: Hold It Together. (We Have Each Other), a solo exhibition by ISCP resident Maja Bekan, concluding a year-long collaboration with New York City residents Pon-Pon Yeh, Mandy Morrison, Marie Christine, Juliana Cope, Cynthia Berkshire, Susan Hapgood, Alison Kuo and many others.

The gallery will be presented as a combination of performance stage, recording studio, and rehearsal space for visitors to contemplate Bekan’s choreography for human connection in a time of separation. The artist’s collaborators and audience are implicated in her call to prepare “to assemble again and exercise togetherness.”

This exhibition is coordinated by Alison Kuo, ISCP Arts Residency Manager, with exhibition assistant coordinator, Daniela Chaparro.

A printed take-away with an essay by Thyrza Goodeve will be available in the gallery in May, 2021.

Maja Bekan is a co-founder and developer of the Rotterdam based artists’ initiative ADA, Area for Debate and Art. In 2008 she began the long-term research project P for Performance, as a method to initiate situations, use performance as a both a tool to investigate collective intimacy, and a stage for knowledge production. Bekan has exhibited work at Ujazdowski Castle Centre for Contemporary Art, Warsaw; Kunsthaus, Graz; and Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven, among others.
