Lochness, a Ghent-based collective and artist run space, is converting Kunsthal Gent's Oud Huis into 'Nessy Extreme', a modular skate park where skaters, artists and the public can meet. It will be a platform for an interdisciplinary programme. Young collectives De Verffabriek, Spare Wheel and Medusa are also invited in turn to host an event and fill a billboard in the space. Also: zine launches, music and more!
Nessy Xtreme opens on Friday 7 April and can be visited every weekend thereafter until summer.
Every Friday evening for 9 weeks, Kunsthal Gent will host a program centered around one or more artists, a collective or organization. From an artist talk, debate or book presentation to a performance, documentary or film evening.
The events are partly related to Kunsthal Gent's artistic program and have grown out of the courses of artists with whom we currently collaborate, such as the evenings with Eleni Kamma (in collaboration with Hans Bryssinck and KASK Performance students), Dieter Durinck and Ben Benaouisse.
However, much of Vrijdagavonden's program comes about in dialogue and collaboration with local partners and artists. For this series we collaborated with, among others, Lochness, School of Love, Martina Petrović & Robert Monchen (In de Ruimte) Filip Van Dingenen and Hélène Meyer (Piloot).
