In a World Thick with Opaque Complexities was a group show with performances, workshops, and artist talks curated by CAVE Collective in MAMA Showroom from 23 March to 10 April 2022.
The exhibition brought together existing work and new experiments from on-going research on TRANSPARENCY. How to make MAMA Showroom a transparent cave? There are transparent materials, (un)transparent bureaucracy of artist immigration,
transparent glass that barricades MAMA from the outside publics of Witte de Withstraat, our desire for transparency in the lateral violence within institutions, and our desire for transparency amidst information war bombardment into our feed.
We offered an encounter with the Cave, planned and through collective research, the project evolved, fermented and spread, our contagious CAVE, inviting collaborators to inhabit its structure.
Anh Dao, Yu-ching Chiang, Ying-Ting Shen, Fileona Dkhar, Gabi Dao, Finding the Wild (Jazmin Charalambous & Felix Mohr), and an artist talk with Angus Liao
