Know Who You Are at Every Age

Know Who You Are at Every Age by Q_RAIDER with BDGRMMR introduces and acknowledges a hefty number of works and things by artists who cross generations, disciplines and cultural specificities.

Together, Q_Raider and BDGRMMR hope to facilitate discussion around white cube politics as well as invite the public to ask questions about the artworks and things on view, instilling gallery visitors with power and confidence when they may feel vulnerable and uncomfortable.

This non-thematic group exhibition is the result of a collaborative project initiated by Q_Raider, a curatorial platform as public profile representing the nascent Office of Curatorial Work founded by independent curator Edwin Ramoran.
