Lichtekooi presented its first exhibition: Beste kunstwereld, … [Dear art world, …], a group exhibition devoted to the context of the art world. The invited artists reflect on the various factors and stakeholders, ranging from the commercial circuit to the art world’s institutional framework and crowd.
With this exhibition, Lichtekooi aimed to examine the art world and its inner workings – of which it will itself become a part – from an artist’s perspective.
Curated by Nadia Bijl, Pepa De Maesschalck and Vedran Kopljar.
