The Road Is Clear is an exhibition/happening about the urgency of diversity acknowledgement. In the first of the series we address contemporary gender related issues mainly about female inclusivity. Here we state that diversity is not gender related. The exhibition setting is a place to express contemporary issues not just to please the public with "salable stuff for commercial gain". We purposefully selected a group exhibition made by a full female selection to emphasize female diversity in a setting away from the patriarch. Even though we are not exclusive to men, this is the optimal situation to prove our point, and prove it we will.

"If the exhibition setting is a reflection of daily life and we need to be inclusive, will we be included in a male world or will we have an individual voice or will we be accepted contextually?" Those are questions you can ask yourself within this exhibition.You can appreciate this internationally acclaimed selections' beauty, relevance and historic value as well as a very diverse exhibition where contextualisation is key!

The exhibition also functions as a 'Trigger Party' (a term appropriated from the 60s movement 'situationist international') where the selected artists are given an absolute free platform to express their voice in direct communication with the public and untouched by a political intention. We will set up a public livestream in an all inclusive setting generating an opportunity for direct public discourse.

A diverse selection in media is prevalent in the exhibition: performance, painting, photography, sculpture, video, virtual reality, installation, in situ...

We kindly invite everyone interested for an open dialogue in this 3 day only exhibition/happening.
