For fashion enthusiasts, the Neutrality exhibition by Rad Hourani explores a world without borders. Neither an artist nor a photographer or designer, but all together, the Canadian of Syrian and Jordanian origin already has a great reputation internationally. He was also the first designer to present a unisex couture collection at fashion week in Paris. For those who love unique clothing with symmetrical cuts, a temporary shop with ready-to-wear pieces from the artist has been specially created for this exhibition. The kind of pieces that, like his art, may appreciate in value over time.

For those who prefer video, the exhibit from Y20 Duality and Dominic Shotz will be more to your liking. This is a big event for this multi-platform system that combines all the artist's mediums. A mixture of video, photography and sculptures that explore the various emotional and physical dualities of a couple. An exhibition that will take you back to your own ‘others’ and a world that will conquer even the most skeptical of contemporary art.
