On the coming Saturday, on 6 of August, "Arsenał" Gallery organises the panel discussion about the exhibition "The Journey to The East" which will take place in Białystok. The opening of the exhibition is on Friday, August the 5th.
The panel discussion and the accompanying events realized while the exhibition duration will be very interesting.
The panel consists of two parts and in the evening, at 7 pm, you can enjoy watching the performance titled Love Skape, performed by Tranzlaboratorium.
The organizers write about the message of the exhibition: “Edwin Bendyk postulates that the solution to various global problems is the creation of interpersonal relations based on love, not competition, hierarchy or domination. The artists explore the idea of love, which transgresses the notion of relation between two people, seeking positive emotions, which create bonds between people all over the world – bonds that are an alternative to government authority and economic capital.”
In the panel will take part the guests from Poland and abroad: Edwin Bendyk, Jahangir Selimkhanov, Larissa Babij, Magda Guruli, Nini Palavandishvili, Lada Nakonechna, Lena Prents, Olga Rybchinskaya, Ewa Khachatryan, Stefan Rusu, Ruben Arevshatyan, Joanna Warsza.
