We are very excited to be part of the Negative Space: Trajectories of Sculpture exhibition at ZKM | Center for Art and Media in Germany.
The exhibition “Negative Space” endeavours to change the dominating view of modern and contemporary sculpture by telling a different story. The exhibition offers a comprehensive overview of the art of sculpture, which – in contrast to the traditional concept – is committed to contour, emptiness, and levitation.

We are delighted to announce that RANDOM INTERNATIONAL will be taking part in DYSFUNCTIONAL, a group exhibition organised by Carpenters Workshop Gallery taking place at the Galleria Ca’d’Oro in Venice during the Venice Biennale 2019.
DYSFUNCTIONAL seeks to forget function whilst celebrating the power of artistic expression. The idea of dysfunction, defined as ‘the disruption of normal social relations’, invites visitors to rethink the conventional relationship between form and function, art and design, the historical and the modern.
