Witte de With is pleased to present two upcoming acts in the Morality program: Act VIII: Nether Land, a group exhibition held in Shanghai and Act IX: Let Us Compare Mythologies, a three-day performance cycle in Rotterdam.

ACT VIII: Nether Land
Exhibition
20 June – 11 July 2010
Dutch Culture Centre, 800 Changde Lu, Jing’an District, Shanghai

Open: Tuesday to Sunday, from 11:00 to 19:00

Saturday 19 June:

14:30 Public roundtable discussion with selected artists, moderated by the curators.
16:00 Opening Cocktail Reception.

Every Saturday & Sunday 20 June – 11 July:
15:00 Dance performance choreographed by nunu kong for Jennifer Tee’s new installation Star-Crossed.

Act VIII: Nether Land is an act of Morality conceived specifically for the “world stage” of the World Expo 2010 and takes place at the Dutch Cultural Center in Shanghai. Nether Land invites reflection on the paradox of cross-cultural perception. Each exhibited work projects a different relationship with a faraway land, be this Asia, Africa, Europe or the Middle East, making it impossible for a stable portrait of any one country or culture to emerge.

Featured artists: Allan Sekula, Erik van Lieshout, Jacques de Koning, Jennifer Tee, Ken Lum, Lidwien van de Ven, MadeIn, Meschac Gaba, Sarah Morris, Zheng Guogu.

Curated by Nicolaus Schafhausen and Monika Szewczyk, assisted by Amira Gad.

ACT IX: Let Us Compare Mythologies
Performance cycle
18, 19 & 20 June 2010
In and around Witte de With, Rotterdam

Let Us Compare Mythologies, the ninth act of Morality, is a three-day cycle of performances featuring the work of international artists that explore the nature of performance and question the mythologies created around art objects.

These staged contributions will examine a wide variety of topics such as the intrinsic relationship between man and (art)object, the animal as a tool for social criticism and the creative power of fiction.

We are most grateful to all participants who are willing to show their works, (re)stage their performances and compare their mythologies…

What happens when two myths meet, will they dissolve or will they reinforce each other?

Featured artists: Danaï Anesiadou, Baktruppen, Geneviève Belleveau, Dineo Seshee Bopape, Keren Cytter & Andrew Kerton, Oskar Dawicki, Simon Denny, D.O.R., Lili Reynaud-Dewar, Leeroy the Duck, Yngve Holen, Gergely László, Mark Leckey, Patrizio Di Massimo, Rory Pilgrim, Eliza Newman-Saul, Tris Vonna-Michell, Jeremy Shaw.

Curated by Renske Janssen and Dorothea Jendricke.
