An Ode to Adulting

An Ode to Adulting is a contemplation of adulthood, within and against a myriad  of backdrops. The simultaneity of being and adulthood/adulting is observed  through a week-long screening of films whose stories draw on the poetry of coming of age, “being of age”, and a latter part of agehood where often, it seems, a realization of failure and/or misguidedness in the performance of adult are had. And in some instances a contentedness of successfully though often chaotically adulting, is reached.


In human terms, the title adult not only refers to physical growth, but is highly attributed to the expectations laid out for the physically grown human being. These expectations emanating from both the individual and its society. The weight of these expectations often playing a significant role in the responses the adult has to life. These are not always directly communicated but through the performance of the ready adulting adults in a society, the one moving towards the position of adult uses these performances as mode of example to emulate, once they themselves assume the adult position.

Thus said, the exhibition also plays at juxtaposing the figure with the performance and expected performance of the adult figure. 


I am looking for artists who could contribute:

  • - film shorts(no longer than 20minutes) which will be included in the exhibition space for the duration of the      show


  • - A proposal of an intervention which can be held either online or physically in the space

The exhibition will be held in May 24-29th at the OnCurating Project Space in Zurich


DEADLINE: April 28, 2021

Please forward all proposals to agwele33 [op] gmail [punt] com, as well as any other enquiries to the same address.
