Yemenwed is a collaborative project series, which brings together an expansive cast of artists from varied disciplines. Through video, performance, sculpture, and musical instrumentation, Yemenwed explores abstracted concepts of displacement and detachment, fluid identity, domesticity, and the peripheral. Yemenwed has participated in exhibitions and performances at MoMA P.S.1, Performa 09, Fake Estate Gallery, 179 Canal, John Connelly Presents, and Gavin Brown’s Passerby. Their publications have been distributed by Ooga Booga (Los Angeles), Printed Matter (New York), Quimby’s (Chicago), United Bamboo (Tokyo), and Midway Contemporary Art (Minnesota).
