Studio tours O&O: Visit The Artist
02, 09, 16, 23 May, 19.00-21.30 h / h
Join us for a studio visit with various artists in Rotterdam! Discover two artists on four Wednesday evenings in May, and get to know their ideas and method. Cihad Caner, Eloise Sweetman, Marielle Buitendijk, Johannes Langkamp, Robert Glas, Maud van den Beuken, Frank van der Salm en Eva Olthof receive you in their studio, give a look behind the scenes and tell about the special projects that they were able to realize with an R&D contribution.
Visit the Artist is organized in the context of the new publication of the R&D scheme. The artists who open their studio have all received a contribution from this scheme in recent years. The R&D publication describes four years of artistic research on the basis of different professional views: the artist as campaigner, connector, translator, newsreader, historian, scientist, technologist and image maker. Each evening you can meet two artists who take on a similar role in their work - and fill it in in their own way.
With every edition of Visit the Artist two groups of up to 15 participants visit two artists on one evening. The participants are received by a host of CBK Rotterdam, after which the artist talks about his / her work and fascinations. The workshops are located at a maximum of 1 minutes cycling distance from each other. The first visit starts at 10:19 PM. The groups change studios at 00:20 PM, and the evening ends with a drink at 15:21 PM. Tickets are available through TENT and cost € 30 (including free R&D publication).
