*Night in the Garden of Love by Shezad Dawood

For this new exhibition, British artist Shezad Dawood draws on the creative inventiveness of Yusef Lateef, the African-American musician, composer and creative jack-of-all-trades. Enter Dawood's world through an enchanting virtual reality experience, a series of new painted textiles and an algorithmic plant garden that grows digitally in response to Lateef's music.

On several occasions, you will also encounter a dancing Mutant throughout the exhibition, dressed in a specially created costume-sculpture. Dawood's work breaks down the boundaries between analogue and digital, between fiction, virtual reality and real life.

Curators: Zoë Gray & Helena Kritis 

Produced in partnership with : Aga Khan Museum in Toronto


**Espaces Souples by Tapta

From the 1960s onwards, the Belgian-Polish artist Tapta worked on a radical redefinition of sculpture using textiles and other soft materials as sculptural elements. This exhibition focuses on Tapta's attention to the tactility of materials, the flexibility of structures, individual and collective practice, and the interaction between artwork, space and viewer. In relation to Tapta's historical works, the exhibition also presents new works by Greet Billet, Hana Miletić and Richard Venlet.

Curator: Liesbeth Decan

In collaboration with: the Interm
