About Project Berlin
In 2014 Livingstone opened an independent project space in Berlin: Livingstone Projects Berlin.
Its experimental exhibition approach, contrary to classic exhibition concepts, is to create an exhibition in real-time. For periods of 2-4 months artists can use the gallery space as a studio to create a presentation in cooperation with curator Jeroen Dijkstra. The artist starts in an empty gallery and at the end of the work period there is an installation/exhibition.
After Berlin the show will travel to at least one other location. This can be a museum, an art fair, a gallery or Livingstone gallery in The Hague. The solo presentation ‘Colliding Galaxies’ by Raquel Maulwurf at PULSE Contemporary Art Fair New York in 2014 (nominated for the PULSE Prize) was the first project that was initiated in Berlin (This presentation was made possible by a grant from the Mondriaan Fund). For Season 2015-2016 projects were realized with Adriaan Rees (NL/CHN), Jan Wattjes(NL), Hugo Tieleman(NL), Daniele Galliano(I) and Mark Brusse(NL/F).
In 2016 the studio program was also opened to invited artists from other galleries. In the summer of 2016 USA-based artist Long-Bin Chen worked at Livingstone Projects Berlin (courtesy Frederieke Taylor Gallery, New York). Other artists involved in our 2016-2017 program are a.o. Jasper de Beijer (NL), Birgit Verwer (CH/NL), Kevin Berlin (USA/I) and Armando Mariño (CU/USA).
