GEM Z: The Farthest from Earth We've Ever Been

From 30 October until 30 November the exhibition GEM Z: The Farthest from Earth We've Ever Been is on display at Gallery 3 By You in Het Nieuwe Instituut. The exhibition is cast as the speculative crash-landing site of an alien pod and showcases the results of the eponymous talent-development programme by Current Obsession. 

The presented works fuse design, digital art and adornment, all through the lens of Generation Z. In celebration of the exhibition four of the participating artist give insight into their work (method), covering a variety of urgent topics within the field of contemporary adornment ranging from diamond marketing, design fictions to queer identity. 

Participating Artists

Danielle Karlikoff, Hansel Tai, Joannette van der Veer, and Simon Marsiglia. They will be joined by artist Andrew Thomas Huang.

Gallery 3 By You

The exhibition spaces in Gallery 3 (on the top floor of the museum building of Het Nieuwe Instituut) are open to projects - whether an academy graduation show, an installation around an urban event, a presentation by a professional association, or work by young Rotterdam makers. The creators arrange the set-up and disassembly themselves, take care of attracting visitors and carry the costs of the presentation. In return, Het Nieuwe Instituut makes space available and provides support in producing the presentation and communicating it.
