The group exhibition “Shout Plenty” maintains an exchange between individual experience and collective memory to determine generational misery. Seeking to construct an intertwined story of unmistakable voices, the curators have brought together artists from diverse media to convey a message of cohesion that values individual real factors.
Taking its name from Fela Kuti‘s groundbreaking 1986 album, the exhibition “Shout Plenty” questions the battles through the experience of art making and mediations. By examining the different ways in which freedom and voice reverberate in global understanding, “Shout Plenty” gives work to the inner existences of a few artists, as well as their networks, creating a strong mode of struggle.
Combined with creative thinking and reasoning, these interventions produce a special representation and understanding of generational socio-political holes.
The exhibition “Shout Plenty” explores how art can function as a strong and progressive power to challenge standardized frames of control.
