Test_Lab: Summer Sessions 2012
New artworks by Carina Hesper, Constantijn Smit, Tom Verbruggen, Jon Stam, and Simon de Bakker developed at V2_ during this year’s Summer Sessions. Performance: TokTek Critical respondent: Mariette Dölle (Director TENT.)
Every year, V2_ invites a small group of up-and-coming artists to spend their summer at V2Lab for an intense short-term residency. During these so-called Summer Sessions, the selected artists are given the opportunity to develop an artwork in close collaboration with V2’s expert developers, curators and project managers.
This year’s Summer Sessions welcomed three individual artists and one artist duo into V2Lab to realize new art projects. By holding the Summer Sessions residencies in parallel, V2 aimed to promote a creative synergy between the selected artists. The outcome of this process will be presented during TestLab: Summer Sessions 2012. In the TestLab tradition, the projects will be demonstrated live and the audience will be invited to ‘test’ the artworks hands-on.
The evening will be closed with summer cocktails and a live sound performance by TokTek.
