Traces AIR Antwerpen

Opening new venue Wednesday 18 May 2016

On Wednesday 18 May from 5pm onwards AIR Antwerpen and Studio Start open their new venue at the Kielsevest 23-25, 2018 Antwerp.

In two former officers houses presentations and performances take place of international residents and participants of the second STRT Kit edition. Luís Lázaro Matos (PT), Ani Schulze (DE), Mirte van Duppen (NL) and Alberto Garcia del Castillo (SP/BE) present new and existing art works dispersed over the locations. These interventions offer an insight in the production process and activities during their work periods. Curator Isabel Van Bos organizes the first exhibition of the current STRT Kit participants Jim Campers, Maika Garnica, Ode de Kort, mountaincutters and Timo van Grinsven. This exhibition questions the meaning and influence of the studio in these artists' practices.

The venue will be opened in the presence of the Council of culture Philip Heylen and council of youth Nabilla Ait Daoud. The exhibition will be on view during the Antwerp Art Weekend from 20 until 22 May with opening hours on Friday from 12 until 10pm, Saturday from 12 tot 6pm and Sunday from 12 to 6pm.
