DISCOVER ‘CLOUD POINT’, A GROUP SHOW CURATED BY NICOLAS BOURRIAUD IN COLLABORATION WITH RADICANTS FOLLOWED BY LUNCH IN MAYFAIR
Cloud Point at Paradise Row begins a new cycle of exhibitions by Radicants, an international curatorial cooperative, created in 2022 by Nicolas Bourriaud.
The exhibition shows how today’s artists explore the world from its cellular level upwards.
Nicolas Aguirre, Marieke Bernard Berkel, Hicham Berrada, Alice Channer, Pakui Hardware, My-Lan Hoang-Thuy, Zarah Landes, Estrid Lutz, Tala Madani, Pamela Rosenkranz.
In an act repeated across its year-long programme, Paradise Row Projects has invited Nicolas Bourriaud to select the NGO that will benefit financially from the show. Accordingly, Cloud Point will raise funds for Palianytsia, a Ukrainian charity based in Lviv, Ukraine, dedicated to providing humanitarian aid to refugees and war victims.
Paradise Row Projects is a one-year, not-for-profit, curatorial project that showcases an outstanding cultural programme, drawn from across London, the UK and the world, that foregrounds social and environmental impact. Each exhibition and event fundraises for specific, urgent, social and environmental needs and causes.
