SomoS participates in “B-LA Connect,” an international project in which 20 Art Spaces form LA engage in a cultural exchange with 22 Art Spaces in Berlin. SomoS is delighted to host “Nothing Special,” an 11 by 11 foot artist-run space based in West Adams, Los Angeles. Its exhibitions revolve around simple themes that make a virtue of the gallery’s limitations, featuring projects that either expand upon or exist in parallel to the participants’ usual artistic practice.
SOMOS BERLIN ARTIST-IN-RESIDENCE OPEN CALL 2019
NEW RESIDENT ARTISTS
SomoS is happy to welcome several new artists to its Berlin Artist-in-Residence Program 2019.
Sophie Morrow (1993) is an artist from Melbourne, Australia, whose multidisciplinary approach focuses on sexual identities, the language of desire, and performativity.
Marcia Vaitsman, PhD, is a multi-disciplinary artist born in Brazil and currently based in New Jersey, USA. Marcia’s work is rooted in the theme of migration, and how both the body and the mind cope with disorientation.
Dongyan Chen (Singapore) is a Chinese-born, London-based fine artist and illustrator. Chen explores the making and reconstructing of memories and dreams through sound, installation, photography, video, and drawing.
Ivetta Sunyoung Kang is a Montreal-based South Korean multidisciplinary artist. She is interested in the “dead memories” imprinted in found analog film footage. She appropriaties these in her art while subverting the initial commercial purpose of the material.
Hanae Moreno joins us from Geneva to pursue her autobiographical figurative painting focused on the self and the body.
