Drawing from an apocalyptic fiction co-authored by the artist and Nicholas Zhu, the exhibition references the story of a band of protagonists on their way to a doomsday party, manifesting in the space as an oversized graphic novel. The show’s opening night on November 6 will feature performances from VIOLENCE, Tears of Fire, as well as a special guest.share news item
AQNB is releasing even my dreams don’t go outside, a download-only album of new music and visual works on April 22.
Compiled and curated by our team, the compendium features contributions from artists featured on the platform in the recent past, alongside those helping to define our scene into the future. It’s inspired by the endless scroll of introspection that has come to define this time in global crisis, while aiming to build positive momentum and financial support for the artists involved during lockdown.
Music contributions come from Dasychira, Elvin Brandhi, Fauness, Keru Not Ever, Rui Ho, ssaliva and others, as well as visual pieces by Tea Stražičić, Alexander Iezzi, Emma Pryde and more. See the lovely cover art by Jennifer Mehigan below.

Tea and Marta Stražičić‘s Schwestern Sisters collective’s Dance with the devil group exhibition, in collaboration with the artistic duo Ittah Yoda (Virgile Ittah and Kai Yoda), was on at Zagreb’s Galerija Močvara between March 1 to 8.
Curated by Lovro Japundzic, Sculptural elements of bones, crude tools in an icy-white gallery space accompany a video work and game with an engaging sense of dystopian escapism. Behind the sheen of the user interface and display—where a demon-like character glides around a post-apocalyptic landscape collecting tokens—lies an uncomfortably hopeless tedium. The show alludes to impending social and environmental collapse with both fear and intrigue.**share news item
