press release

CELEBRATION! is the title and motto of uqbar’s 3rd anniversary exhibition from April 24 to May 12, 2010. After numerous exhibitions and events – artists' talks, book presentations, workshops, film screenings and lectures – exciting discussions, networking, a bit of work and also a lot of fun now it’s time to party! The curators' collective (Dorothee Bienert, Dortje Drechsel, Marina Sorbello, Antje Weitzel) decided on a simple principle, that pays tribute to all, especially the artists, who made uqbar and its work possible and supported it over the years. All artists the team worked within the last 3 years are now invited to contribute a work of their choice, not exceeding 1 x 1 x 1 meter in its dimensions, and to involve two other fellow artists. CELEBRATION! is an thrilling cocktail of fragile drawings, photographs and site-specific work, up to performances, bringing together more than 50 international artistic positions. The opening on April 23, 2010 will culminate in a surprise party at Mirror Bar (Mazzarol/Scoufaras/Sehatkar), true to the lyrics of Kool and the Gang: "It's time to come together, celebrate good times, come on, let's celebrate!"
