The exhibition Fluidity creates a framework for positions of contemporary art that articulate the spectrum of gender difference. Positions that suspend certainties about gender, sexuality, and desire, and reveal that the traditional identity categories of man and woman, heterosexual and homosexual are incomplete approaches to real-life experiences. Instead of reproducing the narration of the normative through affirmation or negation, the exhibition shows perspectives that destabilize the expectation system of normality. Based on the work of nine selected contemporary artists, the exhibition explores a field of boundless scope, reflecting the plurality and the power output of contemporary art in an international context.
