We present solo exhibitions and long-term projects by local and international artists whose work connects art with other cultural disciplines. We further explore these relations through screenings, performances, lecture series, publications, or workshops. Our public programs also provide a forum for our artists in residence to share their upcoming projects and research.

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 Showing-Doing and Hearing Voices.

Amant’s programming upends the temporal limitations of conventional exhibition-making by cultivating long-term collaborations, explorations across disciplines and practices, the re-visiting and re-imagining of past works, and a multi-rhythmic approach to public programming. Our Ongoing Series turn the institution into a platform for extended periods of cross-pollination between the artists in residence, the artists whose work and ideas are presented throughout the campus, as well as our audience and our immediate context of Brooklyn. Ongoing Series intends to strengthen the dialogue between artists and their collaborators, and challenges the relationship between learning, listening, and knowledge.
