Our Team

Idris has an extremely dynamic team. As a mobile artist-run initiative presenting rotating exhibitions, the people involved are constantly growing and shifting. Artists who take part in exhibitions work in a collaborative structure and take up a number of tasks ranging from project planning, production, and presentation assessments. At Idris we believe that each artist deserves a say not only in what is the subject and object of his/her show but also in the way artistic production is to be delivered to the audience.
