Fourteen international artists cordially invite you to Assemble Relatives, a temporary assembly across three contemporary art spaces in Rotterdam. The conversations, relationships and practices these artists have developed over two years, at the Master Fine Art of Piet Zwart Institute, coalesce in this single moment before they disperse into a new constellation. Three local contemporary art institutions—MAMA, TENT and ramfoundation—provide the stage for a guided script in which the artworks at first speak for themselves, then shift positions toward each other and the audience over the course of the ten-day event. There will be collaborations, artworks distributed en route, changes in the installations, bursts of songs, and performances inside and outside the three venues. Assemble Relatives is a collective array of singularities.
