New series: Artists in Conversation

New series: Artists in Conversation

DutchCulture presents Artists in Conversation: a dialogue between artists of different nationalities, exploring their perspectives on the cultural climate.

Artists in Conversation is a new series of broadcasts by DutchCulture in which we learn about the cultural climate in Egypt, Australia, and Hungary. By offering artists the opportunity to engage in conversation with each other, we don't only get to know the artists and their practices, but also the cultural sector of the environment they work in. Every edition of the series consists of two dialogues between an artist from the Netherlands and an artist from another country. Moreover, upcoming talents will be given the opportunity to present their work during the programme.

Artists in Conversation - Edition Egypt

In the first episode of Artists in Conversation we dive deeper into the artistic dialogue between the Netherlands and Egypt. Participating Artists Omar Nagati (Caïro, Egypt), Michelle Provoost (Rotterdam, the Netherlands), Mahmoud Khaled (Alexandria, Egypt), and Nat Muller (Amsterdam, the Netherlands) go into conversation with one another discussing the theme of urbanism and public spaces. Dalia Dawoud, representative of the Dutch embassy in Egypt, will kick off the session with her perspective on the current cultural climate in Caïro. 

Within the last couple of years, there has been an increasing interest and mutual exchange between artists from the Netherlands and Egypt. The residency programme B’sarya in Alexandria, in which several Dutch artists have (digitally) participated, is just one of the manifold beautiful examples of cultural cooperation between the two countries.

Artists in Conversation - Edition Australia

In the second edition of Artists in Conversation, DutchCulture explores the current cultural and artistic climate in Australia and the Netherlands through conversations between artists from both countries. We have invited artists Maria Verstappen (NL), Janet Laurence (AUS), Brian Elstak (NL), Richard Bell (AUS), and Emma Fielden (AUS) for one on one conversations. The event will be introduced by writer Nardi Simpson (AUS) who will recite a short piece that she has written especially for the event. Artists is Conversation – Australia evolves around issues such as sustainability, environment, heritage and fair practice. 

Australia’s history is complex and can be told from many different perspectives. The urge to tell Australia’s history from the perspective of the first peoples of Australia is ever-growing, especially in the cultural sector. This tendency goes hand in hand with the realisation that the relationship between humans and nature needs to change. The artists we have invited work around these issues in their art and will elaborate on this in the broadcast. 

Artists in Conversation - Edition Australia will be live-streamed on 24 June. 

Artists in Conversation - Edition Hungary

Artists in Conversation - Edition Hungary will be live-streamed on 1 July. More details about the programme will be announced soon.
