wpZimmer shares its infrastructure in Antwerp with a number of small organizations and is rapidly becoming a lively, collective workplace for a range of artistic activities. We aim to strike a healthy balance between local presence and international kudos.
Our open residency programme supports a succession of broad-based artists. With some eight makers we enter into a sustainable, long-term relationship with the ultimate objective of enabling them to go it alone on the artistic scene. Whether we meet artists briefly, offer them a temporary workplace or a permanent base, our approach is always flexible and tailored to their specific needs. We facilitate collaboration between the artist and his professional field and set store by the exchange and sharing of contacts, knowledge and experience.
The following artists are currently under wpZimmer’s wing:
- Cecilia Lisa Eliceche
- Naomi Kerkhove
- Dounia Mahammed
- James McGinn
- Katrien Oosterlinck
- Hagar Tenenbaum
- Karl Van Welden
- Gosie Vervloessem
wpZimmer invites a wide range of artists for short-time residencies. An overview can be found here.
wpZimmer is subsidized by the Flemish Community.
