‘MANNA from below’

 

Outset Partners Grants Awards Ceremony 

MANNA from below is a lecture performance series by Abbas Zahedi, which was initiated at ICF’s Diaspora Pavilion in Venice in 2017. Zahedi has since adapted the work into various formats and it continues to evolve in response to different exhibition and performance commissions. In March 2019 ICF invited Abbas to present an iteration of the MANNA from below lecture performance at the Royal Academy in London as part of the Outset Contemporary Art Fund Partners Grants Announcement, where ICF was awarded a grant for the development and delivery of the Diaspora Pavilion 2 programme between 2019 and 2021.
