First exposition: LIEVELING
Ongekend is an art collective started by students from AKV St.Joost in 2018. Soon after I joined as well because I wanted to learn more about organizing and constructing expositions.
After almost a year of involvement I got the chance to organize an exposition by myself, leading a small team.
The subject of this exposition was 'Lieveling,' Preciuos, in English. All the artists that we chose who could exhibit their work had to come up with a personal 'precious', in connection to work that they wanted to exhibit. This made for an exhibition with a great personal touch from the artists themselves.
As I organized this exposition I now know how this works and what it means to be a team leader. I also learned to network and to keep in touch with people that are involved, from the artists themselves to location renters.
I hope to organize many more events in the future, because I really like to be a team leader and work together with many people and organizations to get the maximum results out of expositions or other events.
