Curated by Mai Abu ElDahab

From 9 July to 22 August, TENT. presents 'If you say something, see something', the graduation show of the PZI Master Fine Art. Twelve artists from various countries present new installations, photographs, videos and performances. The exhibition is curated by Mai Abu ElDahab in collaboration with artist Guy Ben-Ner. The title of the exhibition, 'If you say something, see something', is taken from the title of a poem by Charles Bernstein. Like this word play, it skews the habitual hierarchy of form and content.

Mai Abu ElDahab is director of the art space Objectif Exhibitions (Antwerp, BE) and was invited as guest curator for the final presentation. For the past six months, she has been working together with the twelve participating artists on the basis of a brief informed by the students' interests and written by artist Ben-Ner on her request.

Presentation of Promotieprijs 2010

Before the opening, the Promotieprijs 2010 will be awarded to one of the graduates. The Promotieprijs is an initiative by Stichting Promotieprijs. The jury for the Promotieprijs 2010 consists of: chairman Hugo Bongers (secretary Rotterdamse Raad voor Kunst en Cultuur), David Baars (architect), Elizabeth Kleinveld (artist, director Artstart). Last year's Promotieprijs was awarded to Rachel Carey (US).

Publication

The exhibition is accompanied by a publication edited by Mai Abu ElDahab and the artists. Design: Kaisa Lassinaro. The publication is available from the reception desk at TENT. for € 4.
