RECIDENCY AND EXHIBITION PERIOD
The artist has in generally the premises from the first to the last day of the month. The artist can use the first couple of days until the opening, to hang up artworks and be ready for the opening.
In the exhibitionperiod, the artist has the opportunity to stay, live and work in the premises as much as they want.
The opening is in generally the first Saturday or Sonday of the month at 3-5 pm.
We have tried to adapt the opening hours, so there is both opportunity for visitors to come and see the exhibition, but also time for peace and quiet at other times.
Opening hours are Wednesday to Friday 1-5 pm, Saturday and Sunday 10-3 am.
The artist is of course welcome to stay open beyond the scheduled hours. But it is expected that the artist will open on the regular opening times. If there are two or more artists, they can share the opening hours.
ALLOCATION OF COSTS
Kunsthal vARTe pays for all operating costs and PR. This will include posters, press releases, social media, newsletters and mail invitations to each exhibition. If the artist wish to arrange an event, a workshop, an artist talk e.a. during their stay, we can also help with the PR for this.
The artist is of course very welcome to spread the message in their own network.
Kunsthal vARTe is a non-profit initiative where the premises is created. The artists contribute to the operating costs in the form of an artwork from the exhibition. The payment artwork will be selected by the art manager with approval from the artist.
