Dive Bar events are always free and this will be a seated event with limited capacity. To ensure your place, please email your name to firstname.lastname@example.org. We advise that you arrive by 6:10pm, or risk losing your spot at the Dive Bar.
On this evening, Dina Danish will present a press conference, which will be conducted by a panel of experts, with assistance from the props department. Just to note, if A Simultaneous Poem were to take place, it would involve Charlie Chaplin, Theo van Doesburg, Kurt Schwitters and the ridiculously good-looking Letterist International (and everybody else). Cocktail of the evening will be The French 75, served on ice for €5.
This event is running as part of the exhibition The Centre For Dying On Stage #1, curated by Kate Strain. Every Thursday a recurring Dive Bar will transform the gallery into an informal social space for performance, exchange and encounter.
Dina Danish (b. Paris, France, 1981) currently resides in Amsterdam. Her work combines conceptual art’s preoccupation with language and structure with an interest in humor, misunderstanding and superstition. Danish’s recent solo exhibitions include Four Friends Fought Furiously For The Phone at De Nederlandsche Bank, Amsterdam, NL; Double Bubble Gum, Doubles Bubble at Galerie Barbara Seiler, Zurich and Re-Play: Back in 10 Minutes at SpazioA, Italy. Her work has been included in group exhibitions at Kunsthall Oslo, de Appel Arts Center in Amsterdam, Beirut in Cairo and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Most recently, she performed with de Appel Arts Center at the Stedelijk Museum and performed Kurt Schwitters’ Ursonata at the Cairo Pavilion of the Amsterdam Biennial. Danish studied in both Cairo and San Francisco and has taken part in various artist residencies including the Rijksakademie in Amsterdam, Spinola Banna in Italy, AIR Dubai and PiST/// in Istanbul.
