On 9 September the Rotterdam exhibition space TENT. started the cultural season with Paramaribo Perspectives, a large group exhibition that brings together a self-aware generation of Surinamese and Dutch artists. The exhibition is the follow-up to a period of cultural exchange between artists from Rotterdam and Paramaribo. Against the background of the current political rift between the Netherlands and Suriname, Paramaribo Perspectives positions the artist as arbitrator of the changing cultural, political and social relationships.
