Tlön Projects is delighted to announce the appointment of Nathalie Zonnenberg as the next curator for our annual collaboration with A Tale of A Tub in Rotterdam (NL). Zonnenberg will curate an exhibition based on research in the imaginary collection of Tlön Projects. This imaginary collection is formed by the converge of selected artworks from various international private art collections, whereby Tlön Projects aims to generate access to artworks which otherwise would have been largely shielded from public access.
