Amant is a non-profit arts organization in Brooklyn, NY, founded in 2019. We are a non-collecting learning institution, which gives us the freedom to focus on experimentation, process, and dialogue through exhibitions, public programs, and artist residencies.

Through our Study Lines, we share the main threads in our various programs and ways of working. The Study Lines also shape our future thinking. For this reason, our exhibitions tend to unfold over longer time periods; we conceive of them as chapters or installments that gradually connect to each other. Our current Study Lines are Hearing Voices and Love Expanded Love Extended.

By organizing our work around these Study Lines, we pay close attention to the contexts that have shaped the practices we engage with and we aim to add additional interpretations from our own context by opening up the range of conversations.

Our main method of engagement with our collaborators, colleagues, and audiences is through learning, an ongoing process that depends on awareness, attention, curiosity, and a realization that knowledge comes in multiple forms, languages, and experiences. We are committed to building cultural partnerships, in the U.S. and abroad, while activating new and ongoing conversations with our local communities.

Amant is a nonprofit 501©(3) organization and has been certified by W.A.G.E.

Our Campus

Amant was designed by Brooklyn-based architecture firm SO–IL as an art campus, housing exhibition galleries, a performance space, a bookstore and café, as well as an independent studio residency. A series of courtyards and thoroughfares weave through and between the buildings thereby integrating art spaces into the urban fabric of East Williamsburg.

Internships and Fellowships

High School Internships
Amant partners with local public high schools and educational organizations on a tri-annual, 6-week internship program designed for high-school age students. Our current partners include The High School for Enterprise, Business and Technology and St. Nick’s Alliance.

College & Graduate Internships
Amant’s curatorial internship program offers hands-on experience in the development and organization of a wide range of artistic programs, including exhibitions, public programs and other educational and residency initiatives.

Our Fellows work in depth with the curatorial team on public programs and exhibition, engaging in extensive archival and historical research. This program is specially designed for PhD students or young curators with experience in archival research.

The fleuron is a variable mark drawn using a polar equation. It is inspired by the flora in Amant’s courtyards, which change naturally with the season and as the institution grows.
