Curated by Sam Bardaouil and Till Fellrath of Art Reoriented, Tea with Nefertiti explores the mechanisms by which artworks come to acquire a range of meanings and functions that can embody a number of diverse, and at times conflicting narratives. The exhibition is concerned with the critique of museology, the staging of the artwork, the writing of art- historical narratives and the employment of mechanisms of visual and literary display as a means of forming, informing and framing cultural otherness.
