Riga

A glimpse of Riga

During Hoogtij #55, QUARTAIR will be occupied by Latvian artists. An evening that will let you catch a glimpse of what the capital Riga and itscitizens are.
Get to know their art, drink their traditional Black Balsam, listen to the band The Bad Tones ( concerts at 20:30 and 22:00 ) and watch the 16 mm shortfilm ‘’Sound we see: Riga’’ where 25 artists capture the vibe of the city.

Participating artists: Rudolfs Stamers, Gundega Strauberga, Estere Betija Gravere, Sabine Vernere, Ieva Jakuša, Nanda Milberta, The Bad Tones and Eliza Elizabete Ramza.

The Bad Tones

The Bad Tones is a psychedelic rock quartet from Latvia previously known as The Pink Elephant. Mixing skills crafted through classical rock and blues standards with the song writing approach of modern, independent music, they've developed their own style and form. In Quartair they will perform as a trio, so you will meet The Bad Tones lite version.

Friday, November 30th, 2018
Doors open 19:00
Concert: The Bad Tones 20:30 and 22:30
Film: ''Sound we see: Riga’’(on view all night long)
Curated by: Eliza Elizabete Ramza

E-Witness

 

E-Witness

When looking at the role of women in history we often see women working on the background; widows, orphans, but also victims of (sexual) violence. From the rape of the Sabine women, the Korean and Indonesian ‘comfort women’, the kidnapped school girls of Boko Haram, to the IS women. But women also have been fighters and heroes; at times they might also be instrumental in perpetuating war. Read more on the page: E-Witness

E-Witness, Women and War is a program that aims to revisit and reflect on the role of women in war. Korean art group Art Ze-An departs from their historical perspective, the Korea war. The Dutch artists in the show focus on more recent events. With: Min Cheolhong, Heo Eunyoung, Shim Jung-ah, Chung Kyungmi, Ha Min-su, Han SoongHun, Hwang Seonyoung, Kim Suhyang, Shin Young-Seong, Jessy Rahman and Theater of Wrong Decisions.

The program consisted of an exhibition at Quartair, a Round Table at the International Institute for Social Studies (ISS) on Tuesday, 20 Nov 16:00-18:00 in ISS Aula, and an Urban Safari, on Saturday 24 November - 11:00-13:00, in The Hague.

Exhibition Opening Friday, November 19th, 2018 at 18:00

In deze expositie is werk te zien van:


Delphine Courtillot

Raymond Cuijpers
Wieteke Heldens
Robbin Heyker
Jeroen Hofhuizen
André Kruysen
Ilona Plaum

'The hand of the human may be distinguished by the precision grip; however, the humanity of the hand, Heidegger argued, lies in its possession by the word. ‘Man does not “have” hands, but the hand holds the essence of man, because the word as the essential realm of the hand is the ground of the essence of man’. Thus language holds the hand, and the hand holds man.' - Tim Ingold
('Making Anthropology, Archaeology, Art and Architecture',  2013)

AS FAR AS I CAN REACH
Liza Wolters, Mike Moonen, Sophia den Breems, Gordon Meuleman, Marilou Klapwijk

Hoe diep, hoe hoog, hoe hard en hoe ver kun je gaan? Zullen we het erover hebben, over dat wat nog voor ons ligt? Over het werk dat we nog willen maken en wat onze dromen omvatten. We vragen het ons af. Wat zijn de mogelijkheden in ons alledaags bestaan? Kun je lucht duwen? De magie van het dagelijkse verschijnt enkel als je het belicht.

De groepstentoonstelling As Far As I Can Reach is gebouwd op een fundering van deze vragen en bestaat uit nieuw werk van de vijf deelnemende kunstenaars. Het werk is speciaal gemaakt voor de tentoonstellingsruimte van Quartair.

De gemene deler die de kunstenaars samenbracht voor deze tentoonstelling is de verwondering over de magie van het alledaagse. Echter ontstaat het werk op totaal verschillende wijze en weerkaatst het ene als tranen op beton en landt het ander zacht op een doorweekt kussen.

We zien je graag tijdens de opening!

Gelijktijdig met de opening van het Haagse kunstfestival Holaa!

FRESH DOUGH

20 april tot en met 22 april


Opening vrijdag 20 april 18:00 - 23:00 uur

zaterdag en zondag 21 en 22 april 12:00 tot 18.00 uur



Fresh Dough

Iliada Charalambous, Luis Maly, Leonie Schneider, Jeannette Slutter.


Today we constantly experience a changing social, and urban landscape in which temporality is the norm, objects are made to be replaced instead of to last.
Fresh Dough is an exhibition where four young artists based in The Hague react to this notion of temporality through sculptural ephemerality and a reaction to space.
Four diverse approaches to sculpture and site-specificity will be presented in Quartair to explore the temporality in contemporary sculpture and perhaps its very ephemeral nature.


Luis Maly (1991, Wiltz) is a multidisciplinary artist based in The Hague. For the past year he is busy making architectural interventions in space. These normally are consisted by large scale installations. His work is a open dialogue with the exhibition space. By studying the space he composes a work which fits harmonically to the location.
www.luismaly.com

Leonie Schneider (1993, Munich) is a visual artist and musician, currently based in The Hague. She is in the graduation year of her bachelor study of fine arts at the Royal Academy of The Hague. Her artistic practice deals with the topics power and authority in social structures. The concept of family constellation is often an inspiration to the positioning of her sculptures. The idea of the stage, where audience and sculptures are performing together reappears in her exhibiting.
http://leonieschneider.kabkfinearts.nl/

Iliada Charalambous ( Limassol, 1993) is an artist currently based in The Hague. She holds a BA diploma in Fine Arts, sculpture from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts, The Hague. Currently she is engaged in an artistic practice exploring various aspects of the human condition within contemporary society in relation to the past.
www.iliadacharalambous.net

Jeannette Slütter's (1988, Enschede) work consists of site-specific installations/situations. She studied at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague and is living and working between Rotterdam and The Hague. In her works she questions the format of exhibition, with an interest in duration and movement.

RISE
The Winter exhibition of the MA Artistic Research

Vrijdag 16 februari vanaf 17.00 uur


Students of the MA Artistic Research at the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague (KABK) will exhibit their research practices at Quartair as the culmination of a week of curatorial experiments with Stockholm based curator Jonatan Habib Engqvist.

Participating artists:
Mel Chan, Arthur Cordier, Lucy Engelman, Daisy Madden Wells, Katrina Niebergal, Ángel Orellana,
Matthew Lanning, Helena Sanders, Paulien Bekker, Greta Facchinato, Xaviera Hardjopawiro, Loretta Moore,
Hsu Wai Lun, Minsook Kang, Valentino Russo, Raquel Sanchez, Cristiana Vignatelli.

The evening will begin with a public discussion between Engqvist and curator/educator Clare Butcher on the roles of curators and artists, on exhibiting artistic research, and on the place of exhibitions within the art school context.

The exhibition follows on from an earlier event held at STROOM, Den Haag on February 9 with artist Marysia Lewandowska. Both events focus, in different ways, on issues related to the modes and contexts of artistic distribution.

De tentoonstelling is ook geopend op Zaterdag 17 februari, van 13.00 tot 16.00 uur.
