The Showroom



An ongoing project by Polish curator and artistic director of Wyspa Institute of Art, Aneta Szylak and Iraqi-Kurdish artist Hiwa K that seeks to rethink cultures of representation as well as create a space for intimate and individual encounters.

At The Showroom works and contextual material gathered from the project's earlier incarnations were exhibited alongside a single edition publication that further develops the themes of the project.

Accompanying the exhibition was a series of events including two new performance-based commissions by Hiwa K and Polish artist Joanna Rajkowska.

This project was a partnership between The Showroom and Wyspa Institute of Art. Hiwa K’s residency was organised in collaboration with the Serpentine Gallery, and Joanna Rajkowska’s project was part of POLSKA! YEAR.
