You say Hello and I say Goodbye

afscheid_aank.jpg

Sometimes our beloved Rotterdam is the most boring place on earth, while
other days are just packed with all kinds of good stuff to undertake. This
upcoming friday for instance is just jam stuffed with the crème de menthe
of Rotterdam art(ists) and cultural entrepreneurs.
Cucosa’s doing a full blown summary of all ‘Cucosa Artists’. Besides that,
there’s the opening of Sjarel Ex’ vision of ‘Rotterdam’s Finest in Art’ called
Project Rotterdam’, which of course takes place at the Boijmans van
Beuningen Museum.

But real HuMobisten fans know where to go next friday afternoon. As a
sideshow of the before mentioned ‘Project Rotterdam’ in collaboration
with the World Championship Skateboarding Rotterdam, Design Gallery
VIVID organised a show called ‘StraatWijs’, starring Andy Mueller, Evan
Hecox, vijf890, Nultien ontwerp and us dropping mad graphic designer
knowledge. Anyway, most of our printed matter is on display there, so
if you’re anxious to see what it looks like for real, be sure to be there.

We probably won’t make the opening, since by that time we’re probably
already preparing for our latest romantic blast in art history, our installation/
performance entitled ‘Het Afscheid’ (a dutch word meaning both ‘The Parting’
as ‘The Farewell’. Europe’s an ancient poetic place, my American friends).
Be sure to be there, we made something really nice. Anyway, that starts
at nine o’clock as part of the very last Salon Las Palmas, appropriately
entitled ‘Leaving Las Palmas’. Ever wondered what the Magic Factory of
Farewell looks like? Cough up eleven euros and come ’round, afterwards
we’ll dance, meet up with strangers and maybe even cry some. Besides,
‘Things end and then they begin again’, remember… (by the way, if you’re
the one who borrowed my ‘Last Tango in Paris’ DVD, I forgot who you are.
Can you please return it to me.)

Plus more Rotterdam Made stuff will be shown the next day (saturday, july
2nd) at the Polish Art Gallery. Quint Hartmann, Adi Khavous, Tymen Visser
and Robert Rosenau will present their recent works there. Starting at 19.00
hrs. this party/exhibition is a must go if you feel like really heavy chilling
after that busy, busy friday night.

    Is het een vaas of zijn het twee Humobisten? Sterk staaltje visuele perceptie hoor!
