KUNSTHAL GENT DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME – permanently practising
The Development Programme offers the context of Kunsthal Gent – an experimental intersection for contemporary art, located in a 13th century monastery in the centre of Ghent – as a workspace and an opportunity for the development of artistic practice.
Six artists, collectives, small organisations or collaboration initiatives per year are offered a Development Fellowship of up to 3 months: a period of research and development, tailored with and around each selected participant, supported by a team of collaborators and invited guests. Participants are challenged to leave their mark on Kunsthal Gent’s public programme (running parallel to the exhibition programme) in experimental ways. There is a budget of maximum € 5.000 available for each fellowship.
The underlying ambition of Kunsthal Gent is to grow a network of participants, connected organisations and experts that will be beneficial beyond the fellowship period and provide a stimulus for the wider (local) arts community.
SELECTION DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME 2019-2020
This spring, Kunsthal Gent launched an open call for six artists, collectives or collaboration initiatives who will be offered a Development Fellowship in 2019-2020. From more than 250 entries, a jury (the artistic coordinators together with representatives of Kunsthal Gent's structural partners and artists who are currently part of the programme) selected six artists and collectives who will be hosted in Kunsthal Gent over the coming year:
Saddie Choua (Brussels)
Elke Van Kerckvoorde (Ghent)
Post Collective (Ghent)
Ja Ja Ja Nee Nee Nee (Amsterdam)
Émilie Brout & Maxime Marion (Paris)
