This spring Parasol unit foundation for contemporary art will present Parades and Processions: Here
comes everybody . The exhibition will feature works by twelve international artists who take their
inspiration from the traditional meanings of ‘parades’ and ‘processions’, creating works that
epitomise the social and political context of our time. The resulting works, ranging from sculpture
to installation, films and videos, are powerful forms of expression that address issues of history,
culture, identity and politics. They also highlight the recent and increasing phenomenon in our
society of holding parades and processions. This exhibition aims to show a selection of works by
contemporary artists who see in these themes considerable possibilities for expression. 
This exhibition is curated by Ziba Ardalan de Weck and will be accompanied by a new publication.
