Artistic research has increasingly become part of contemporary art. Art Hub engages in this burgeoning field with Testing Ground – a forum where researching artists can share their investigations and present their experiments.
Testing Ground exists at the intersection of knowledge production and art practice, and between the studio and the exhibition space. Conceived as a site for inquiry and potential, Testing Ground allows artists to define the format within which they want to unpack their work process and reflect on their thinking together with an audience or a peer group.
Among other forms of artistic development, the program aims to support artists in pursuing new techniques, materials and media, in exploring hypotheses and new formats, and in creating networks and dialogue between people from different fields. With events such as workshops, meetings and broadcasts, Testing Ground represents a way for various publics to follow artistic research.
