Caveat is a collective research project initiated by Jubilee, reflecting and acting on the ecology of artistic practice. Emptor continues along the methodology and efforts of Caveat.

Kunsthal Gent

Biography

Kunsthal Gent is an experimental intersection for the presentation and development of contemporary art, located in a monumental fourteenth-century Carmelite monastery in the centre of Ghent since 2018.

Encounters and collaboration are the driving forces behind a hybrid programme with different layers and speeds, in which various artistic players react to each other and to the spatial context. Visual art is central to the programme, which is constantly nourished and challenged by architecture, design, audiovisual art, performing arts and art in public space. With this broad approach, Kunsthal Gent not only transcends the classical definitions of the artist, curator, critic and designer, but also breaks down the dividing lines between individual, collective and organisation.
Kunsthal Gent offers these players a professional framework for experimenting with new ways of developing and presenting; it functions not only as an exhibition space, but also as a meeting place and as a base of operations; it builds and strengthens networks and opens the door to the city. With this approach, Kunsthal Gent aims to be a link between artist-run spaces, galleries, art schools and museums and to contribute to the development of a healthy ecology for contemporary art in Ghent.
