March Meeting 2018: Active Forms

Sharjah Art Foundation

17 Mar 201819 Mar 2018

The 11th edition of March Meeting, “Active Forms” addresses issues of resistance through the consideration of organising as a primary act and condition for artistic and cultural production. Examining the relationship between familiar forms, such as projects, exhibitions and conferences, and the informal activity from which these emerge, MM 2018 explores how organising enables us to conceptualise resistance as not only a practice of ‘standing against’ but also one of ongoing exchange and future planning. MM 2018 will propose ways to reassess notions of agency and authorship through the lens of art, writing, film, music, performance and architecture.
Expanding on the programme’s key ideas, Active Forms will also present an exhibition of works from the Sharjah Art Foundation Collection by artists John Akomfrah, Basma Alsharif, Halil Altindere, Bahar Behbahani, Hazem Harb, Gulnara Kasmalieva and Muratbek Djumaliev, Almagul Menlibayeva, Naeem Mohaiemen and Raeda Saadeh. On view from 16 March to 16 May, the works will enrich MM 2018 conversations about issues of resistance, organising and form and extend the dialogue and engagement beyond the three days of the meetings.
