On the 26th and 27th of October, all 22 studios of Scheveningen’s cultural incubator See Lab will be open to the public. Artists, inventors, musicians, as well as other creative entrepreneurs will be present to show you around and talk about their work.
The weekend is a unique occasion to get to know the artists who use metal, paint, foam, musical scores, and other media to shape their ideas. Meet artists who teach lessons from their studios throughout the year, and visit the seven attic studios which host graduates fresh from art school.
The 19th century building at Duinstraat 55 is a former school building though with a little imagination it could easily have been an old monastery, or even the seaside palace of the Oranjes.
In the former chapel/gym, now See Lab’s very own exhibition space, Annabelle Schatteman will show her latest work The Desired State. The installation is the first stopover on her imaginary journey which began with her previous work heading for the purple planet.
See Lab is a new cultural incubator located in an old school building at The Hague beach, The Netherlands. It emerged from a shared dream to establish a long term working community where professional artist and culture creators with a DIY
mentality work both independently and together on art and culture. See Lab hosts 22 affordable workspaces and a project space. It functions as an experimental laboratory for its users by providing testing ground for new ideas and space to explore.
See Lab rents out studios to professional art and culture makers with a ' Do It Yourself ' attitude. A typical studio is 50m2, making it possible to share a room and keep costs low. The studios are located on the ground floor, first floor and second floor of the school building. The layout is designed so the semi-public spaces are located on the ground floor, making them easily accessible and giving it a public character.
7 NEW STUDIOS WELCOMED NEW ARTISTS
In the past months See Lab developed 7 extra artist workspaces on the second floor. The realisation of the extra artist workspaces are made possible with the generous financial support of the Municipality of The Hague and Stroom The Hague.
See Lab transformed the former gym of the school building into a project space of more than 130 m2. This project space has an impressively high ceiling, excellent lighting and sound possibilities, and is situated just next to the sea! See Lab intends to make a relevant contribution to The Hague’s artistic climate through its project space program by initiating, producing and hosting interesting small and large scale experimental art
exhibitions, presentations, events and artist talks on a regular basis. To stimulate new developments in contemporary art by offering the stage to national and international artists where they can produce and present their work and improve the visibility of their art in society. Besides organising their own program See Lab is open to collaborate with guest curators, guest artists and other international artist run spaces.
