VEDA

VEDA VEDA is a contemporary art gallery. VEDA started its activity as a project space in May 2016, in Florence.
(5)

The project’s founding proposition was to give invited artists the opportunity to confront their artistic practice within the atypical architecture of the space, challenging them to overcome the intrinsic conditions of a non-accessible space, with no floor beneath the street level, visible 24/7. Following the need to pursue a deeper dialogue with the artists’ practices, VEDA decided to become an art gallery a year later.

Thank you, Eric Otieno Sumba, for the insightful comments in this wise and thoughtful text on 's artistic practice and research.
His thoughts are published in No. 241, March 2024.
“Disillusioned with cosmological Afrofuturism, White’s vision of the future has become darker – and more fluid: ‘There’s so little that we know about the deep sea. It seems to contain more possibilities than, say, outer space, the imaginative capacity of which seems to be dwindling.’ As the ‘province of all mankind’ – to quote the 1967 Outer Space Treaty – becomes the playground of moneyed men, the deep sea, while not immune to similar exploration attempts, remains as terrifying as it is exciting. When speculating about our nautical future, White makes no effort to hide her nihilist sympathies, acknowledging humanity’s inability to survive underwater long-term due to the pressure and the lack of light. Yet, visions of futurity, for White, are the domain of radical scepticism, where the illusion of certainty has forever been abandoned. With each new work, White returns to this realm eager to see how a piece of old wood, a retired net or a stretch of rope might cope.”

_excerpt from “The Haunted Hydrology of Dominique White”, written by Eric Otieno Sumba, on Frieze Magazine,No.241, March 2024.

May You Break Free and Outlive Your Enemies,2021 by Dominique White, pictured in Reivindicar la Resiliencia / Reclaiming Resilience's exhibition catalogue, published by and # .
"In 2023, the Lithuanian artist duo , formed by and , were invited to curate a series of exhibitions that explored the theme of resilience through the work of four artists: Dominique White, Monia Ben Hamouda, Naomi Rincón and Bianca Bondi.
The cycle sought to create a narrative on resilience understood as something collective, rather than individual. For Pakui Hardware, resilience is a non-linear process that develops through interactions between people, or between people and their environment. This curated programme of four individual exhibitions thus attempts to reclaim resilience from neoliberal interests and explore it as a form of "healing", of "resistance", of "strength"."

Dominique White and Alberta Whittle: Sargasso Sea is an exhibition that takes its name from the only body of water that is defined solely by oceanic currents rather than shorelines. The Sargasso Sea lies just north of the Caribbean, stretching up towards the American coast and out towards the mid-Atlantic, encompassing an ecological system supported by the seaweed, Sargassum, as well as Marine routes that have reorganized the world through colonial expansion, trade, trafficking, environmental devastation, enslavement and migration. In this exhibition, guest-curated by Daniella Rose King, White’s and Whittle’s work invoke futures that upend this world with counter images of shipwreck, salvage, reciprocity and Black feminist led-revolution.
Dominique White and Alberta Whittle: Sargasso Sea is curated by guest curator Daniella Rose King and organized for ICA by Denise Ryner, Andrea B. Laporte Curator.
Support for Dominique White and Alberta Whittle: Sargasso Sea has been provided by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and by the Henry Moore Foundation. Additional support has been provided by Cecile & Christopher D’Amelio, Norma & Lawrence Reichlin, and Linda & Jeffrey Chodorow.

We are pleased to announce the participation of Amitai Romm in  After the Sun / Forecasts from the North, a groupshow curated by Helga Christoffersen, Curator-at-Large, Curator of the Nordic Art & Culture Initiative, at , Buffalo, New York, USA.
After the Sun—Forecasts from the North surveys a generational response to the precarious state of our natural environment. Historically, art from the Nordic region has been closely tied to depictions of nature. It is no surprise, then, that a diverse group of artists with strong ties to Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden question what it means to depict landscape today in a time of intensifying climate crisis. After the Sun considers how emergencies at a Northern latitude reverberate globally and asks what images are generated in response.
The exhibition’s title is drawn from Danish writer Jonas Eika’s collection of short stories Efter Solen (After the Sun), winner of the Nordic Literature Prize in 2019. Eike has said that the book emerged from a sense of personal and political exhaustion, a feeling that he believes is shared by many:

“That the way we imagine the future is mostly just a continuation of what there is today. The future, as a potential for change and a source of political energy, seems to be missing.” 

As Eika’s book addresses the profound challenge of responding to forces that pull us apart, the artists included in After the Sun grapple with how artistic practice may or may not succeed at meaningfully shaping the future world.
After the Sun—Forecasts from the North is the inaugural exhibition of the Buffalo AKG Nordic Art & Culture Initiative. The exhibition is supported by the New Carlsberg Foundation and NorthCape Wealth Management. Additional support is provided by the Danish Arts Foundation and Frame Contemporary Art Finland. Exhibition and individual artist support is granted by the Office of Contemporary Art Norway.
After the Sun—Forecasts from the North is co-organized by the Buffalo AKG Art Museum and Gammel Strand, Copenhagen, Denmark. 
The Nordic Art and Culture Initiative is made possible by the leadership support of the Nordic Founding Patrons group.

Seeing fractions as division. There is no way to opt out of the scheme. Yesterday or after yesterday. A nose full of apples, apricots and honey. A loose sleeveless cloak or cape. Spend more than a year developing 10 new questions. Lies in state. Fair to say. Safe to say. Heatwaves will be hotter. See how other people feel. Defending planets, hearts pounding. Probably we trained each other. These gates are closed at dusk. Wine water milk jug. How they decide what is most important to them. No one lives in the global average. It’s a sample of the world’s own heart.

Probably we trained each other.

Honey,

The best way to account for the coherence of our experience is to suppose that the outside world corresponds, at least approximately, to the image of it provided by our senses. I pull three beetles out of my ear. They look like skeletons but then when I put them in water they swim. Can you run out of adrenaline? Hard vs Soft Magic. Don’t be afraid to seek support from your bank. In the metaverse surgeons will practise hundreds of times. Forever Chemicals. Surgeons will be able to practise hundreds of times in the metaverse. Turn key anti-clockwise. Anger can sometimes put a person in a frightening situation. Love does not just happen, it is willed.

\\ Last Days

When Disaster Strikes, Dominique White' solo show at Kunsthalle Münster, curated by Merle Radtke.
on view until March 10, 2024.
"The seemingly fragile works are imbued with an immediately palpable brutality. Her visual vernacular combines the imitation of an abandoned ship at sea with tattered sails, threadbare handwoven nets, mangled anchors and battered buoys with raffia and cowrie shells that have been cast as if wrapped in a ghostly shroud of kaolin. Also, harpoons, decomposed by salt water, are recurring elements in her work. In the exclusively newly produced works for the exhibition at the Kunsthalle, Dominique White also takes up the motif of the crab cage and uses it as a more or less abstract form to salvage stories, that should no longer remain below sea level. At the same she refers to the crab cage as a trap that might pull ships into the abyss. Once they are drifting forgotten and invisible through the sea, they start to have a comparable indiscriminate effect as sea mines—a form of (accidental) self-destruction. An example of how the master’s tools could in fact dismantle the master’s house."
The exhibition is supported by the Ministry of Culture and Science of the German state of North Rhine - Westphalia, Henry Moore Foundation, Institut Français and Republique Française.
The programme of the Kunsthalle Münster is supported by the Friends of the Kunsthalle Münster.
