Between 23th and 30th of October we will present a new project in our space in the centre of Amsterdam: The AWA hotel, a collaborative installation. Be part of an artwork and have a unique experience! Find us on that online 'book' for more info at Artists With Attitude.
Our gallery/studio is based at OT301 in Amsterdam. The size of our gallery is 5,20 by 7,75 metres. OT301 used to be a squat in the Dutch city of Amsterdam which is located on Overtoom 301. EHBK has now bought the building which is used as a multi-media alternative cultural centre. The building is an old film academy and was squatted in 1999 by a group of artists. It is used in a range of ways, including as a venue for music and films, artists workspaces, a bookshop and an 'organic cultural kitchen' (a vegan restaurant) called De Peper.
The building is a very lively place.During the weekend there are often performances, bands and parties in the big studios of the OT301 building, this can be quite noisy but also very interesting. So if you are looking for a quiet hide away, the AWA HOTEL might not be what you are looking for, but if you are looking to find open, interesting, vibrant people this is the place to be.
The gallery space will be hosting an exhibition of which you will be a part. The bedroom is part of the gallery space but private. There is a bathroom, toilet and a washing machine which are both shared.
Interaction with guests
During the AWA hotel project, we will have four openings that will take place in the evening and will be open to the public. The dates are 22th, 25th, 27th, 29th of October. You are, as part of the installation, required to be there. It will be fun! If you prefer not to be there, that is also ok. In return we will offer you a delicious breakfast.
Artists with Attitude (AWA) is a vibrant and diverse collective of visual artists that aims to enhance communication between artists, art lovers and those who happen to stumble upon the work presented in the AWA gallery at OT301. AWA uses a model of exhibition-making that focuses on the importance of facilitating artists with an open space to present their work and work-in-progress to a diverse audience. AWA are not curators but function as mediators; using their extensive network in the visual arts to generate both audience and participants for the AWA gallery.
