atelierWG Foundation invites visual artists to submit proposals for a solo exhibition in combination with a series of events, to be presented at its project space puntWG in 2017.

With this invitation atelierWG seeks to provide artists with the opportunity to benefit from its exhibition space and its central location in Amsterdam.

Artists are invited to present their work in a solo exhibition, or to show the work of another artist. There is a preference for proposals that combine exhibitions with additional events such as performances, screenings, lectures, artist talks, or dinners etc.
