Join us to explore nonsense in visual and innovative conceptual ways. Visit an international group exhibition featuring 2D and 3D works, film/videos, and an evening of art performance -"Nonsensability".


The event is inspired by Lewis Carroll’s ‘Jabberwocky’, one of the greatest examples of nonsense literature. The show includes a myriad of contemporary messages about playing with fantasy in order to comprehend reality and to defeat menace. This encompasses two-dimensional and three-dimensional artworks (painting, photography, print, mixed media, installation), as well as video/film and performance, all of which may be political, personal or as nonsensical as the poem itself. The artists convey impressions of nonsense and today’s Jabberwocky narrative both figuratively and in abstract forms, drawing from playful and serious perspectives.
