Artist space Club Solo hosts four solo exhibitions by Dutch artists every year.
Hotel Solo is a platform hosting two foreign artist’s initiatives per year.
Café Solo provides a stage for small-scale presentations, including concerts, poetry nights, lectures, and movie nights.
Club Solo gives mid-career artists the opportunity to create and show art in solo exhibitions. The artist and his work take centre stage in this. To the public, Club Solo is an accessible, outspoken platform for Dutch and international visual art.
Club Solo collaborates with Van Abbemuseum and the Museum for Contemporary Art in Antwerp (M HKA). These museums provide each solo exhibition with a piece from one of their own collections.
For the Hotel Solo Projects, Club Solo collaborates with international artist spaces.
For Café Solo, Club Solo organises activities with participants from Rijksakademie Amsterdam, Art Cinema OFFoff in Gent, art academy AKV|St.Joost Breda, Breda Photo and Culture Night Breda.
Club Solo also showcases its programme on large international art fairs. These presentations are meant to give a preview of the programme at Club Solo.
Club Solo introduces secondary school students to artists through educational project Cultuurwinkel (“Culture shop”). Students talk to the artist about his or her fascinations and motivations, based on the solo exhibition that is currently showing.
Club Solo means to give students the opportunity to bridge the gap between them and the artist, and introduce them to the human dimension of the art world. Club Solo confronts them with what autonomy means for one’s own life.
Club Solo members receive the digital newsletter, and are given discounts on publications and programme events. What’s more, as a Club Solo member, you actively contribute to our programme.
Club Solo works with volunteers. They act as gallery attendants during exhibitions, and provide assistance during openings, Café Solo nights, presentations at art fairs, and other activities.
