artist talk on a feminist board game

Pay what you can

Olivia Hernaïz:
Art & My Career

Friday 26 March, 20:00, online via zoom

Join us for an online conversation between Olivia Hernaïz and Ilse Ghekiere (Engagement Arts) about the board game 'Art & My Career', immersing you in the position of women in the art world.

You can borrow the game for free at the ticket desk of Kunsthal Gent! (FR + EN)

Art & My Career

Dialogue is at the centre of Olivia Hernaïz's practice. Her projects are an excuse to engage in conversations with others. With this in mind, the artist invites you to discover 'Art & My Career', a boardgame that addresses the question of the place of women in the world of contemporary art.

This game is intended for both women and men to reflect together in a playful way on this essential question.

From the artist to the museum curator, how do women manage to find their place in this environment? The game 'Art & My Career' invites us to put ourselves in their shoes in order to better understand their work conditions and their struggle.
