Sharelly Emanuelson: Hidden Transcripts (a life set event)
an exhibition with Cecilia Bengtsson / Sharelly Emanuelson / Hannah Dawn Henderson / Annabel Kanaar / Quenton Miller / Sara Pape
A series of six one-day events in collaboration with the Master Artistic Research

In the exhibition, entitled Hidden Transcripts , the autobiographical, fiction and documentary will all come together in an event. The setting is a colorful one containing glitter, feathers and confetti. There will be music and the public is invited to also wear Carnival masks. In the space there will be several video projections containing artistic as well as archive material from, among others, footage relating to Caribbean protest actions in The Hague in 1969, the year that an act of revolution took place in Curacao. During the event everything that happens in the exhibition space is being filmed as a kind of ‘live set’, turning those present into actors and becoming the basis from which a later video work will be created.

The evening will feature a guest lecture by Charissa Granger at 20.00

The Ongoing Conversation offers a series of fast-paced one-day exhibitions, conceived as a dialogue rather than a series of isolated events. During three weeks the exhibition spaces will become a stage for orchestrated ambiguity, paradox, spectatorship and theatricality. From Melville to Wikipedia, from post-colonial questions to universal issues as love and death; all of this will be explored and performed in six mini solo-exhibition events.
Featuring a range of international artists, each exhibition is complemented with an invited guest who will lecture, perform or participate.

This project is the outcome of a collaboration between 1646 and the Master Artistic Research, The Hague.
The Master Artistic Research is a postgraduate study for artists, based at the Royal Academy of Art and the Royal Conservatoire, The Hague. Also see
