OPEN CALL for 2019 Program
1 Jun till 15 Jul 2018
Opening: Tuesday 0 0000 — 00:00 till 00:00 hrs

atelierWG Foundation invites visual artists to organize a two-person exhibition accompanied by a series of events to be presented at puntWG, an exhibition space located in the centre of Amsterdam.

Based on a successful program of duo exhibitions in 2018, we are motivated to continue this format for 2019. We invite proposals for two-person exhibitions in any form that encourage dialogue  between the artists and their work. We look for proposals that combine a rich public program that include events such as performances, screenings, lectures, artist talks, dinners etc. Each exhibition will last four weeks (including installation and de-installation times).

Artists will be selected on the basis of the quality of their proposal and their considered approach to using the space.

atelierWG foundation provides selected artists with an open platform to realize their projects at puntWG. This includes the space and basic equipment, professional photo documentation and the production of printed matter to accompany each exhibition. As a small organization, we unfortunately cannot provide financial support for production. puntWG’s team will issue acceptance letters for successful applicants to support their applications for external funding.

You can find the puntWG floorplan HERE.

Following the relocation of the hospital Wilhelmina Gasthuis in 1984, now the AMC – Academic Medical Center – artists, small business owners and residents have shaped and preserved the unique character and special site of WG in Amsterdam. Today a large number of artists are living and working on the grounds, including those who are part of atelierWG (in Pavilions 18 and 19).

AtelierWG Foundation, established in 1989, houses
 120 artists' studios as well as initiating projects in the fields of art and culture, including international exchanges and Open Studio routes.

In 2006 puntWG was created as an interdisciplinary exhibition space and platform for the arts, with a lively program of exhibitions, performances, concerts, lectures and discussions with the aim of initiating an open and broad discourse between artists and the public. PuntWG was initiated by the artists of atelierWG, who finance the space and organize its programming.
