Negotiating Dystopia is a collaborative installation between Reem Bassous and Maya Portner. The artists create an imagined city, loosely based on cities from their respective heritage. The exhibition space is transformed with a process that questions the boundaries of drawing, through direct application on the wall, layering, cutting and forming paper in relief.
These two artists find overlaps in their commitment to process, and have found artistic collaboration as a way of understanding and reconciling differences in each of their aesthetic, conceptual and cultural points-of-view.
There will be an opening reception on Thursday, September 27, from 6-9PM. Negotiating Dystopia runs from September 24 to October 11 at the Honolulu Museum of Art School, Mezzanine Gallery, 1111 Victoria Street, Honolulu, HI 96814.
