Quartair, a platform for production, presentation and artistic debate.

Quartair initiates and supports exhibitions, projects and exchanges with artists and artist-run-spaces at home and abroad. It pursues an emphatic cooperation with other cultural organizations.
Quartair creates with this a platform for artistists in The Hague operating in an international network with attention for developments in the contemporary visual arts.

Quartair was founded in 1992 as a non-profit organization by a group of young artists, just after graduation from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in The Hague.

Quartair is located at 'The Hague Breadfactory' (picture) , built in 1902, on the Toussaintkade in The Hague. The monumental building is managed by Foundation B141. In the building 12 artists have their studios, and on the ground floor is a gallery space of 200 m2. The building was renovated in 2010.
Quartair is one of the longest running artist-run-spaces in The Hague.
