Hassan Sharif exhibits at the 18th Biennale of Sydney, entitled all our relations, focuses on inclusionary practices of generative thinking, such as collaboration, conversation and compassion, in the face of coercion and destruction. With the creation of conditions for an encounter in consonance with the surrounding world, this event brings emphasis to what is already happening at large. Drawing on the possibility of the present, the Biennale emerges from the engagement of all participants by using a model that begins with two curators, Catherine de Zegher and Gerald McMaster, in dialogue. This matrix of conversation extends to both artists and audiences in a multi-vocal correspondence.
