GYM Gerrit Rietveld Academie, 15-17 May 2013    

2012-2013 presentation: Charity

12 students from the Art in Context* program will show results of a year-long work with the subject of 'Charity'. The opening is on Wednesday the 15th of May at 18.00, the exhibition runs until Friday the 17th of May.

This exhibition is connected to the Charity Event that will take place at NASA (New Art Space Amsterdam) on the 24th of May at 19 h. The works in the GYM exhibition are also featured in the the Art in Context publication on 'Charity' that will be launched during the NASA event.

*Art in context is a new extra-curricular program of the Gerrit Retveld Academie that focuses on the correlation between theory and art practice in connection to social context. The main aim of the program is to enable students to gain and use theoretical and practical knowledge within specific social contexts and to prepare for their post-academy practice. This involves working with social groups and institutions normally resting outside of the art discourse.
