Alternative Art Guide and Artist-Run Network Europe (ARNE)

Alternative Art Guide and Artist-Run Network Europe (ARNE)

Locations

Billytown Quartair Trixie

Event/Exhibition 01 – 03 July

Back to normal

An international project in The Hague on the artist-run world

3 group presentations in the center of The Hague

12 artist-run spaces from across the globe present

24 of their exciting artists

This project, initiated by Alternative Art Guide and Artist- Run Network Europe (ARNE) is loosely based on the idea of normality after the pandemic, and now also challenged by the war in Ukraine. Is an artist-run space only a presentation and production hub, or do we need to reconceive what we are doing? Do we have to stop in our pace more regularly and engage in self-reflection? And, should we not rather move forward than to go back to the normal?

Alternative Art Guide invited four artist-run spaces from The Hague to join us in this project: Hgtomi Rosa, Quartair, Trixie and Billytown. They in their turn invited both one artist-run space from Europe and one from outside of Europe, to form a collective of sorts and present 24 invited artists from all twelve spaces. The presentations will be held in three locations.

1 July 19:00

Opening starting at 19:00 all venues are open! There will be a collective walk to all three exhibitions. We will start the walk at Trixie, then visit Billytown and end at Quartair.

2 July

An afternoon with interview, performance, survey meeting and network meeting: starting at 14:00 until approximately 18:00.

3 July

of July: each venue will host informal talks by some of the artists. Schedule: Trixie 13:30, Quartair from 15:00 and Billytown from 16:30.

The exhibitions can be visited until the 24th of July.

Opening hours: Friday, Saturday, Sunday, 13:00 – 18:00. Billytown is also open on Thursdays, 13:00 – 18:00.

Project 2.0 Gallery

Gallery of modern art in Noordeinde street, The Hague

A true connoisseur recognizes an work of art by its intrinsic, timeless quality. Value is not determined by price or pretentions, but by a singular quality that connects the artist to those enjoying their work. This conviction forms the foundation of Project 2.0 / Gallery: a gallery of modern art that is ambitious rather than pretentious. We are not afraid to stray from the beaten track now and then. We have proven, time and time again, that there is no dichotomy between quality and accessibility in art. Over the past few years, groups of artists and art lovers have attached themselves to Project 2.0 / Gallery. Together with us, they have discovered new experiences in art appreciation. We cordially invite you to join them.

The Sculpture Gallery

The Sculpture Gallery (after a concept by P. Struycken in the early 1990s) is an initiative by Stroom Den Haag. It showcases a gallery of sculptures, placed on pedestals, placed every 25 meters in the pedestrian area of the Grote Markstraat, Kalvermarkt and Spui. Forty Dutch sculptors have been or will be invited to produce a sculpture for this area. Struycken introduced the pedestal because it creates a bond, both literally and figuratively, between the urban environment and sculpture. As each artist is required to conform to the same dimensions, visual coherence is maintained within the diversity of solutions on an urban scale. In 2011 artist Andre Kruysen took over as curator of the sculpture gallery.

The Grey Space in the Middle

The Grey Space in the Middle is a space for fundamental creativity where art, digital culture, science, technology, and philosophy merge in a post-disciplinary state. It is a project and presentation space, music and performance venue and cafe. Within the programming The Grey Space in the Middle explicitly strives for anti-disciplinairity; the space that exists between the hermetic disciplines and program formats. A symposium on the ground floor effortlessly transitions into a performance in the basement or a listening session at the bar, an exhibition and film screening go hand in hand and is fluidly transformed to a sensory dinner or a theater performance. However diverse, the different program domains are complementary with a major role for the experience of the audience.

Parts Project

Collectors look at a lot of art – and they view it with keen eyes. They make unforced, often idiosyncratic choices. PARTS bases its programming on those individualistic choices and takes collectors’ discoveries, opinions and experiences as the jumping-off points for all its exhibitions. PARTS is a private initiative. Through its programming, it seeks not only to broaden the Dutch art field but also motivate collectors to share their works and their passion.

Accessibility: Accessible for all types of wheelchairs, and no adapted toilet available at this location.

Galerie Ramakers

Galerie Ramakers (founded in 1994) is located at the heart of the gallery district in The Hague opposite the Dutch Royal Gardens. Catalijn Ramakers, founder of the gallery wanted to create an exhibition space to express her highly personal taste in art: a mixture of minimalist art, intertwined with a fascination for contemporary surreal trends has been the hallmark of her exhibitions. Some of her artists express an ongoing love for nature, which results in a mere representation of natural elements. The artists represented by the gallery have a certain subtlety in their visual language in common. Besides traditional media such as painting, sculpture and drawing, you will also find new media art, site specific works and installations in the gallery.

Accessibility: Accessible for all types of wheelchairs, and no adapted toilet available at this location.

Galerie Maurits van de Laar

The gallery, established in 1991, focuses on art in which the personal involvement and engagement of the artist emerges. There is an emphasis on drawings because ideas are first formed here, the informality and directness of the medium make that the artist gives himself away most in drawing. Painting shown in the gallery is mostly figurative, here too the personal is important besides individual character or recalcitrance. Three dimensional work has an outspoken personal form language or experiments with new ways of inhabiting spaces and exploring natural processes. In addition there is the awareness, that a gallery should be a stage for experiment also. At least once a year an artist realizes an installation or a project in the gallery.

Accessibility: Accessible for all types of wheelchairs, and no adapted toilet available at this location.

Dürst Britt & Mayhew

Dürst Britt & Mayhew was founded in The Hague in 2015 by curator Jaring Dürst Britt and art critic Alexander Mayhew. We chose The Hague as a homebase for the gallery, because of its flourishing climate for contemporary art and an abundance of experimental non-for-profit spaces.

Dürst Britt & Mayhew is committed to helping artists from different national and artistic backgrounds to further develop their practice. The gallery offers a platform for a more experimental approach to making exhibitions with the aim of reaching both Dutch and international audiences. In the gallery we make five shows a year, allowing artists to use the rough space, which used to be a garage, as they see fit. At art fairs we prefer to bring solo-booths or tightly curated group presentations, as we see the fairs as an extension of our gallery space and programme. The past five years we have participated in amongst others LISTE – Art Fair Basel, NADA Miami, Independent Brussels, ARCO Madrid, Artissima (Turin) and SUNDAY (London).
