'The People Who Came From The Sea', a duo exhibition by Eliyah Mesayer & Galvin Harrison + T.N.G. is now open at Brigade.
The exhibition highlights both artists' individual practices, as well as their collaborative social projects, such as T.N.G. and the Mesayer Foundation. The exhibition provides a comprehensive view into the two artists nuanced and co-operative work to-date.
United by a shared interest in addressing systemic problems within current models of citizenship, the foundation of Mesayer and Harrison's collaborative aesthetic is the Illiyeen Project, a conceptual nation for stateless people proposed as an alternative to the social structures that leave excluded people in a position of unique precarity.
