The 'Slaap Lekker Studio' exhibition is a 'wake up call'. Art such as blockbusters on Instagram, Facebook, YouTube or trade fairs and biennales cut the grass away from the feet of classically working galleries. Influential galleries enhance their visibility and impact by adopting behavioral patterns from large companies. The broom must nevertheless be carried through substantively ambitious galleries; also by that of Galerie van Gelder.
The gallery has always been close to the artists and this way of working is reflected in the group exhibition 'Slaap Lekker Studio'. The artists have been asked to install a work, to do an event or to participate in an art campaign, being invited seven days ahead.
The art and artist's attitude are emphatically reflected in the artist and the public who wants to be present during actions, events, performances and art work introductions performed by the following artists:
Jorge Luis Barragan Castaño
Stephanie Jack Engelbrecht
Voebe de Gruyter
Kimball Gunnar Holth
