Amant is a non-profit arts organization in Brooklyn, NY, founded in 2019. We are a non-collecting institution that fosters experimentation and dialogue through exhibitions, public programs, and artist residencies.

Our aim is to slow down the art-making process so that our residents, collaborators, and exhibiting artists can experiment with formats and reflect on the meaning and contexts of their work. We support both established and mid-career international and local artists who work across diverse creative fields. We are committed to building cultural partnerships with like-minded organizations in the U.S. and abroad, while activating new and ongoing conversations with our local communities.

In developing projects, we act as companions to the artists and aim to slow down the art-making process. We tend to unfold our exhibitions over longer time periods and conceive of them as chapters or installments.

Our approach is informed by Study Lines that bring together contexts, collaborations, ideas and issues, residents, and projects. We are interested in nurturing new meanings and non-hierarchical forms of knowledge rather than in dividing disciplines. Our current Study Lines are Hearing Voices and Love Expanded Love Extended.

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

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.

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.
