What’s On



“’Spectrum of Visibility: People of Colour’ is not a simple statement on inequity in Nordic societies. It is a call for self-examination, an interrogation of ‘normative’ standards, and an urge for societal structures to acknowledge and challenge the perpetuation of ‘invisibility’. This series destabilises the binary of ‘normal’ and ‘other’, seeking a re-evaluation of who is seen, who is overlooked, and the criteria by which these determinations are made.”

Globe Art Point is pleased to announce the exhibition “Spectrum of Visibility: People of Colour” by Moe Louanjli, showcased at GAP Window. This exhibition, visible through the street-facing windows, uses diagnostic test patterns from Dr. Shinobu Ishihara’s 1917 creation to explore and discuss themes of visibility, inclusion, and societal recognition of people of colour within the Nordic socio-political sphere.

In this presentation, Louanjli repurposes these patterns to convey a message about the fluctuating visibility of people of colour. Words are interwoven into these patterns, symbolizing their often-ephemeral recognition in daily life.

Drawing on the philosophical frameworks of Jean-Paul Sartre and Emmanuel Levinas, the series invites onlookers to confront their perceptual biases and the conditioned ways of viewing others. It also questions Franz Fanon’s critical perspective on race, colonialism, and racial prejudice, enriching the discourse surrounding the visibility and recognition—or lack thereof—of racialized individuals.

While the Nordic countries are often celebrated for their high living standards and purported equality, “Spectrum of Visibility: People of Colour” challenges these notions by revealing the implicit biases and exclusions that exist beneath the surface.

This window exhibition allows passersby to engage with the artwork from the street, promoting an open, public dialogue. In addition, the artist has made available 100 complimentary A2 posters placed at the venue. These are available on a first-come, first-served basis, encouraging early engagement and offering a tangible connection to the exhibition’s themes.
