Insider - Outsider
Don’t miss the Open Studio of the first and second year students of iArts on Wednesday April 12th, open from 19:30 until 22:00!
In the domain of Arts and Culture, around the overall topic of ‘Insider – Outsider’, the first year students are working towards an exhibition about the human brain in Museum Dr. Guislain. The Museum Dr. Guislain’s collection has two sections: the history of psychiatry and the art collection. It is located in a building complex which once housed the first real insane asylum in Belgium. Today, it houses the Museum Dr. Guislain, the Dr. Guislain Psychiatric Centre and the Dr. Guislain Training Centre.
The second year students are working towards a collaborative exhibition with Viewmaster Projects about ‘Life of Ornament’ in the Theatre at the Vrijthof. Therefore, they will have moved their studio work to the Intermedia House in Ghent, working on mapping the city. This research on hidden cultures will be the prelude for the development of their final artwork with Viewmaster Projects.
These two projects are collaborations between iArts (Maastricht) and the Theatre at the Vrijthof (Maastricht), the Museum Dr. Guislain (Ghent, Be), Viewmaster (Maastricht), Experimental Intermedia House (Ghent, Be), Intro In Situ (Maastricht).
The open studio will give you an insight on the latest development of the projects and the opportunity to have an open dialogue with the artists and audience!
