A pop-in poetic exhibition x B’Day special curated by Melanin Kris

Inspired by Rotterdam based poetry, music and socially driven narratives, The Melanin Kris pop-in Poetic Exhibition hosts an intimate and lively opening-variety program of curated spoken-thoughts presentations.

On 30 November 2019, Het Nieuwe Instituut will open its new exhibition The Hoodie, curated by Lou Stoppard. Spoken thoughts artist Melanin Kris will host the opening event and perform excerpts of his work. Interpreting the hoodie as ground zero, Melanin Kris will take the visitors on a journey, which will be concluded with a celebration of his birthday during the joined ventured amplified afterparty.

Melanin Kris is a Rotterdam based multidisciplinary storyteller, better known as the 'spoken and visual thought' artist. He believes people are conscious co-creators of reality and therefore architects of the future. He aspires to inspire people to be aware of modern-day superpowers.

Melanin Futurism is the self-coined denominator in which he curates poetry about modern-day dilemmas of colorful people, the culture, and the way in which aesthetics serve as a 21st century imagining of unspoken thoughts, which are expressed through fashion, magical realism, media-art, and philosophies intercrossing western cosmologies.
