After the announcement of the budget cuts in the Flemish cultural sector, and the fierce response, MP Peter De Roover (N-VA) said: “We used to have artists who had a better eye for beauty and aesthetics. That is a very nostalgic vision and it is beautiful that it is coming back. What do we see today? Art is the most individual expression of the most individual feelings of the artist. It is the artist who becomes more important. (...) I think the fact that art is beauty has been forgotten too much in recent years.”
For the occasion of the opening of the new artist-run space “K.L.8”, we are looking for artists to share their vision on the concept of “beauty”. In what forms do contemporary artists envision beauty? Fight it. Embrace it. Consider it. Make it.
What is beauty in today’s world and art?
To be considered for this exhibition, please submit a PDF-document containing:
Send this document to KL8exhibitions@gmail.com. We also accept dropbox- and wetransfer-links when files are too large for standard email.
There is no limit to what can be submitted. We accept everything from painting to video, installation and performance. However, do consider we are unable to show large-scale sculpture or installations due to the fire-code of the building. Make sure people can safely exit the building around your project.
Deadline: 1st of February
We will be making a decision around mid-February, aiming to open the space and exhibition around mid-March.
There is no application fee, but neither can we provide an artist- or project-fee.
“K.L.8” came into existence after Sandra Meilunaite and Dilum Coppens opened up their studio and adjoining garage for a group-exhibition on the theme of “BETWEEN (STAGE)”.
Wanting to further open up a platform for young and emerging artists to show their work, they decided to establish “K.L.8” as an exhibition space in Jette, and host regular exhibitions for artists trying to do what they love, and broaden both the artists’ as their own network.
On Sandra Meilunaite and Dilum Coppens
Sandra Meilunaite and Dilum Coppens studied together for their BA and MA at Fine Arts at LUCA School of Arts, Brussels. After their graduation, they decided to share a studio and try to establish an artistic practice in the contemporary art world with each other’s help.
Experiencing the hardship of working in this chosen field, like most other young artists, they are looking for ways to help other artists and connect with the Brussels (and Belgian) art-scene.
