Alfredo and Isabel Aquilizan are selected to be part of the Sharjah Biennial 11: 13 March – 13 May 2013 in Sharjah, UAE.
“For Sharjah Biennial 11, Hasegawa has proposed a selection of artworks that reassess the Eurocentrism of knowledge in modern times. To do this, she calls for a gathering of architects, designers, creators, and artists, who will bring together different perspectives, and challenge viewers to seek new knowledge by sharing ideas. Hasegawa offers the metaphor of the courtyard in Islamic architecture: The fountain is so generous that everyone can bathe in its waters. She sees Sharjah as a place of hospitality and discipline, and proposes a biennial that embraces these qualities, while also exploring the complexity and diversity of cultures, societies, and politics.”
