587 DEELNEMERS AAN ZOMERSALON 2020 IN KUNSTHAL GENT


Samen met de Gentse Cultuurzomer en meer dan 50 culturele partners verspreidde Kunsthal Gent in juni een oproep aan kunstenaars om deel te nemen aan het eerste Zomersalon. Daar werd massaal op gereageerd en 587 kandidaten voldeden ook aan de voorwaarden. Wie in Gent woont en/of een atelier heeft, er een kunststudie volgde of een duidelijke artistieke band met de stad kan voorleggen, kon binnen vastgelegde afmetingen een recent werk indienen.

Gent heeft duidelijk vruchtbare grond voor beeldende kunst. Internationale kunstenfestivals en grote tentoonstellingen in de stedelijke musea zetten Gent al sinds de jaren ‘80 op de kaart. Met verschillende kunsthogescholen, galeries en kleine organisaties heeft de stad ook een grote aantrekkingskracht op jonge kunstenaars aan het begin van hun carrière. En naast dat professionele veld blijkt uit de vele inzendingen dat nog heel wat anderen met kunst bezig zijn.

Zomersalon 2020 toont deze uitgestrekte dwarsdoorsnede in vol ornaat. Schilderkunst, grafiek, sculpturen, fotografie en textielwerken, maar ook een happening en aangeboden diensten vormen samen een goed gevulde tentoonstelling in de stijl van de vroegere Parijse Salons. Bovendien is al het werk te koop!


BUY LOCAL: STEUN EEN KUNSTENAAR, KOOP EEN WERK

Kunstenaars hebben het moeilijk door de coronacrisis. Uitstel én afstel van tentoonstellingen en opdrachten betekent dat kunstenaars op grote schaal inkomsten mislopen. Meer dan ooit kunnen zij jouw steun gebruiken.

Zomersalon 2020 ‘Buy Local’ biedt niet alleen de kans aan het publiek om Gentse kunstenaars te ontdekken, maar ook om hen rechtstreeks te steunen door een werk te kopen! Je vindt in het Zomersalon werken van 55 tot 11.200 euro, van heel klein tot maximum 1,5 x 1,5 m.


OOK ONLINE OP DE GENTSE CULTUURZOMER

De tentoonstelling loopt in Kunsthal Gent vanaf 17 juli 2020, het begin van De Gentse Cultuurzomer, een initiatief van het Gents Kunstenoverleg, en is daarna te zien én te koop tot 30 augustus. Alle werken worden ook opgenomen in een catalogus.

Op 17 juli lanceert De Gentse Cultuurzomer in samenwerking met croxhapox en Kunsthal Gent een online platform waarop alle werken uit het Zomersalon terug te vinden zijn. Geïnteresseerden kunnen vanaf 17 juli ook via deze weg een kunstwerk uit het Zomersalon kopen.
