De arrogantie van de jeugd is like something non-existent: there is always the pretension to distance yourself from what already exist and what you do not want to be. The pretension will always bring you back to the already existing. It is good to be this haughty, again and again you try to be a tabula rasa. But then again you will always be limited by your knowledge. A sketch of what an exhibition could be, is an exploration of this limitation. A sketch is the search for structure. An open -ended temporality is the only thing this sketch can bring.

On August 1st a studio visit will be organised with Ruta Butkute, the work she has made for the exhibition will only be on view there. If you are interested to participate please email nick@gabrielrolt.com

On August 21st ‘An evening with Chinese video art’ will take place.  A video night during which the program with young Chinese video artists which Cheng Ran curated will be screened. This videoprogram is on constant loop during the exhibition.

On occasion of De arrogantie van de jeugd Alicja Bielawska will make an edition. The edition will be available as of July 25th.
