After editions at House of CT and Soho House, AFROVISM takes over the Shaffyzaal at Felix. For this sixth edition, AFROVISM has invited the artist Sammy Hoever to show you the fascinating sides of digital art with an expo Mouth Full of Golds. At the opening, you will additionally enjoy music and spoken word.

In the expo Mouth Full of Golds, Sammy Hoever explores the endless possibilities of grill making. Inspired by the book ‘Mouth Full of Golds’ about Eddie Plein, each piece in this exhibition tells a unique story. Sammy’s artistic perspective reflects the intersection between art, identity and expression. For this exhibition, Sammy collaborated with talented make-up artist Thirza King, known for her mesmerising work.

The program starts on 31 May with a beautiful mix of spoken word, a saxophone performance by Jemairo Scoop and music from the 1.06 Music Library curated by DRKNGHTS. Drinks for the night will be sponsored by Moå and bites will be provided by Shadiera.
