This year, 44AD looks foward to collaborating with artist Doug Clark and curator Laura Keenan for eighthwonder 2016.

The theme for this year's exhibition is Where i your Humanty? Alongside with the spectacular neon lit installation 'The Humanity Monument' by Doug Clark, on display will be a variety of paint, print, photography and 3D artworks by different artists. So, get the 8th of the 8th into your diaries and join us for 44AD's Open Summer Show Party!

In this exhibition we want to show what best represents humanity. How do we show we are human beings with the ability to think, feel, communicate, express, live?

What makes us human beings? What is our real value to the world? Who are we to the other? What makes us realize and appreciate our own humanity?

This exhibition does not aim to answer the question: Where is your humanity?, since for each of us the aswer is different. But we want to pose the question with visitors about themselves.

"One way or another, we all have to find what best foster the flowering of our humanity in this contemporary life, and dedicate ourselves to that" - Joseph Campbell

Private View: 08 August 2016 (6pm - 8pm)
