About Club Solo

Club Solo is an artist run space that is dedicated to the practice of contemporary art. We present solo exhibitions of Dutch and Belgian artists. Once a year, we invite a foreign artist initiative to present their own program at Club Solo.

In addition to the exhibitions, we organise film screenings, lectures and evenings with themes relating to the artistic practice. In the case of solo exhibitions, we collaborate on a structural basis with the following four museum partners: Van Abbemuseum Eindhoven, M HKA Antwerp, Kunstmuseum Den Haag and S.M.A.K. Ghent.

We like to take our time for the things we organise. That is why we work with artists, writers, museums and other art institutions on a long-term basis. With the gained experiences, we develop the program and policy of Club Solo further.


FOCUS

In each of our activities, we act as a ‘host’ to the artists and artists’ initiatives that show their work or programme in our building. We are curious about their practice and make sure to support their own approach and vision.

Club Solo presents solo exhibitions of mid-career artists from The Netherlands and Belgium. They show their current and new (to be realised) work. The artist is self-steering, the exhibition is not curated. In Club Solo, the guest decides the content of the programme – the audience and us don’t know what will come.

For the public, Club Solo is an open and outspoken platform for Dutch and international art.


PARTNERS

Club Solo collaborates with the Van Abbemuseum (Eindhoven), M HKA (Museum of Contemporary Art Antwerp), Kunstmuseum Den Haag and S.M.A.K. (Ghent). These museums contribute to each solo exhibition with a work from their own collection.
In the Hotel Solo Projects, Club Solo works together with foreign artists’ initiatives.
Within Café Solo, Club Solo organizes activities with participants from the Rijksakademie (Amsterdam), De Ateliers (Amsterdam), Art Cinema OFFoff (Ghent), art academy AKV St. Joost Breda, BredaPhoto and Cultuurnacht Breda.


ART FAIRS

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.


VOLUNTEERS

Club Solo works together with volunteers. They serve as hosts during the exhibitions and they also help with openings, Café Solo evenings, presentations at art fairs and other activities.
