“Untitled” a pop-up exhibition by Jimmy Sommer
Jimmy Sommer is an upcoming artist based in Institute for (X), Århus. He seeks to understand the textural and structural possibilities that cement has to offer. The paintings are abstract and organic. They resemble whatever the viewer sees, like looking at clouds, you’re interpretation is right, but only partially. what do you see? Alien landscapes, vaginas or slushice? Jimmy Sommer laver kunstværker fra sin base på Institut for (X), Århus. Han lader sige lede af makroperspektiver og former i værkerne. Billederne er abstrakte og organiske. De forstiller hvad end du som seer ser i dem, så hvis du ser et landskab fra en fremmed planet, en vagina eller et udklip af en slushice, så har du ret, men kun til dels.
“Jevi From 9 to 11” by Carlos David TC is a fictionalized documentary directed by Carlos David TC and featuring artist Jevijoe Vitug. Inspired by Agnes Varda’s “Cleo from 5 to 7,” the short film follows Jevi, a New York based Filipino painter, as he makes his way from his small studio in New York to the museum where he works 5 days a week as a security guard during the COVID-19 pandemic. A preview screening of an unfinished version of the film will premiere in the auditorium at ARoS Museum, on September 15 ahead of its New York premiere in October and will be followed by a Q&A with online attendance by Jevijoe Vitug.
Carlos David TC is a video artist and experimental filmmaker based in NYC. Born in Venezuela and raised in Miami, his work explores identity in the digital space, coming of age in the era of reality tv, and mobile content creation as a means of communication. His practice uses documentation to produce self-portraits that are then presented via moving image, screenshots, films, memes, music videos, performance and site specific installations.
This event is made possible (in part) by the Queens Council on the Arts with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.

“Soulitate”, by Shubhdeep Singh Parwana
A political feel-good film from a street corner in Aarhus, where a chai bar becomes a social experiment beyond the echo chambers of the 2019 elections in Denmark. Here, you could enjoy a cup of chai and a chat with someone who might not resemble you in terms of opinions and appearance. In response to a political debate that rapidly turned black-and-white, soulitate is a wonderful reminder of how much we actually have in common – and how much we can learn from each other when we engage with and listen to each other.
