Amant Foundation hosts an annual program of exhibitions with international and local artists that highlight critical discourses connecting art with other cultural disciplines. We host public programs designed to be a discursive extension of our residencies and projects, including workshops, films, lecture series, readings, and performances. Amant also previews upcoming projects and research by our artists-in-residence that intend to provide valuable insights into the nature of art production and development.

Artists are invited to either present a single solo exhibition or to develop projects that will continue to evolve over a longer period. In doing so, it permits them to “slow-down” the art-making process, experimenting with, or shifting formats, while also reflecting on the meaning and context of their work through time.

Series are special projects that evolve at their own pace and with their own inherent ‘logic’. Our Series enable artists to experiment with time-based formats, upending the temporal limitations of conventional exhibition-making. We encourage long-term collaborations, explorations across disciplines and practices, as well as the re-visiting and re-imagining of past works. Series intend to strengthen the dialogue between artists and their collaborators, including audience-practitioners and institutional partners. This allows for the expanded time necessary to engage deeply and sustainably in the processes of art production and its various spheres of criticality.
