Nucleo

Nucleo

Description 

Nucleo provides space for creation, exhibitions, analysis and questioning of the contemporary visual arts practice. Nucleo runs an exhibition space, several project spaces and 140 studios for local visual artists located in 10 buildings in the city of Ghent, Belgium. They provide affordable, good quality studios for artists active in various art disciplines. Nucleo broadens and deepens her studio activities by paying particular attention to the social environment, by networking and support, and by addressing the needs for production facilities. Experiment is an inherent part of artistic creation, and Nucleo tailors its activities to the need of the artist. Flexibility and creativity in working methods and types of support are key concepts in their approach. Nucleo offers assistance, made to measure, to the artistic process.

Outcome 

Nucleo organised until 2013 a bi-annual group exhibition with its artists in residence. The last edition of this exhibition contained work of 60 local artists. Since 2015 Nucleo opened a research and presentation venue under the name BLANCO in one of Nucleo’s studio buildings, and is also taking a number of projects outside its own buildings. In this way the organization stimulates its artists to use their work to enter into dialogue with the world beyond the studio.
