A crucial focus for Art Hub is to increase the prospects and perspectives of the emerging contemporary art scene. Art Hub exists first and foremost to support young, emerging visual artists in their art practice, and to support the creation of international interdisciplinary networks and horizons. Central to this is our biannual talent and residency program, which together with our other program tracks provides collaborating artists, curators and other art practitioners with a professional platform for artistic development, production, sparring, networking and communication.
Artistic research is a field of increasing momentum and interest, but what is it exactly? And what can it do? At Art Hub we cast light on the knowledge production of art, boost interdisciplinary art practice, and bring artistic research into public debates. What leads to a work of art taking the form it does? How do artists research the disciplines, materials and issues they work with? And how does this knowledge relate to other knowledge building in the field? By asking these questions in multiple program formats, Art Hub aims to investigate artistic research not only as a concept, but as a visionary and vital practice that currently plays a key role in our ability to investigate, critique and bring perspective to the global, environmental and societal challenges we face.
Art Hub’s Art & Research program is generously supported by the Novo Nordisk Foundation.
One of Art Hub’s key roles is to increase understanding of artistic practice, as well as to qualify and add perspective to public debates on contemporary art. Through public events and a strong focus on communication and knowledge sharing, Art Hub puts artistic practice and production firmly on the agenda, exploring them in different formats from different perspectives for different audiences. Art Hub creates a physical and online forum for the public to encounter younger generations on the contemporary art scene in order to strengthen the voice of artists in society today.
