Opening David Bade & Tirzo Martha

David Bade and Tirzo Martha are two Dutch Curaçaoan artists who came to Genk with their Instituto Buena Bista, an arts and training platform on Curaçao. During two months, these two highly interesting artists turned the gallery of the C-mine cultural center into a breeding ground for talent in direct connection with the surrounding city. Art was created and discussed together with and for the residents of Genk. Before and after this intensive working period, the artists realized 2 sculptures in the Genk district of Sledderlo, together with local residents. Sledderlo is a changing neighborhood through new construction, new accessibility and social change and the artists worked with the residents on the influence of these infrastructural changes and their social implications. Artists David Bade and Tirzo Martha will gladly tell you more about this process and the works that were realized over a bite and a drink on Sunday 30 September, at 2:00 pm.

For two months, these remarkable artists will turn the gallery into a breeding ground for talent, in direct connection with the wider city.

The exhibition is freely accessible from January 29 through March 18, 2018, from 10 am to 5 pm and one hour before and after the performances. For more information on the special events that take place during the exhibition, visit www.c-minecultuurcentrum.be.
