2022-07-24 | Reading session by fellow CUPP Collective at Kunst Kan

safda adf afs This Sunday 24th July at 17:00, there is a reading session by Thami Mnyele Foundation fellow Collective Un Prati a Patu (initiated by Razia Barsatie and Marjet Zwaans) at the exhibition of Razia at Kunst Kan Amsterdam. Don't miss it!
.
Collective Un Prati a Patu (CUPP) creates a mental and physical space for sharing knowledge and experience about ecological and local materials, between artists in Suriname and the Netherlands. Within the 2022 exchange program, CUPP focuses on materials research.
.
In March 2022, CUPP and six artists, Razia Barsatie (SR, based in NL) - Marjet Zwaans (NL) - Maegan Peneux (SR) - Basse Stittgen (DE, based in NL) - Annemarie Daniel (SR) - Asli Hatipoglu (TR, based in NL), lived, studied and worked in the Thami Mnyele Studio. From here they started with physical visits to workshops, material labs and exhibitions in the Netherlands, followed by collective work sessions in the studio. In November 2022, CUPP will continue with material research and the same group of artists will visit workshops and exhibitions in Suriname. This process will take place in online correspondence with two consultants, with experience in presentation and artistic research: Alida Neslo (SR) and Yasmine Ostendorf (NL, based in Mexico).
.
At the end of the research period, CUPP makes a pool of material samples. The material research is translated into a publication with an extra artist's book, so that the steel materials can also be touched and smelled. This serves as a physical material guide for the further application of ecological and local materials in the artist's practice.
.
CUPP collective is supported by Stokroos Foundation, Niemeijer Fund Foundation, Thami Mnyele Foundation Residency Award.

Thami Mnyele Foundation promotes the exchange of art and culture between Africa and the Netherlands.
