Arena 1 Gallery is pleased to host Kaus in LA, Straight Outta Rotterdam, a group exhibition centered on an ongoing residency exchange between Los Angeles and Rotterdam. Curated by LA based independent curator and artist Carl Berg, the exhibition will feature six permanent artists from the Rotterdam based artist’s initiative and residency program Kaus Australis, including: Wietse Eeken, Sandro Setola, Babette Kleijn, Karin Suter, Dineke van Huizen and Chris van Mulligen.
These artists’ works will be joined by a one-room installation of ephemera collected by former Kaus Australis artists-in-residence and curators-in-residence from Los Angeles who attended the program from 2002-2016.
Carl Berg and Kaus members, Dineke Huisen, Chris van Mulligen and Nic Besemer initiated the Los Angeles- Kaus Australis residency program in 2002. Over the 14 years of the residency program, Carl Berg has acted as liaison to Kaus Australis finding artists and curating the program in which over 70 artists have now participated.
This Exhibition was made possible by CBK Rotterdam
