The thirteenth-century walls Caermersklooster monastery at the heart of the Patershol neighbourhood now accommodates Kunsthal Gent. This is an international development and presentation platform for contemporary art in Ghent.

Encounters and collaboration are the driving forces of a hybrid artistic programme, in which the different partners and parties involved respond to one another as well as to the spatial context.

At the weekend, Kunsthal Ghent is an exhibition venue for visual arts and on weekdays, it is a workplace for artists and artistic organisations. Kunsthal Gent is a meeting place for different artistic players and disciplines. Emerging, established, local and international names are all invited here to present their work in exhibitions or develop their artistic practice.

Three times a year, it launches a new version of the ‘Endless Exhibition’, a continuous exhibition programme consisting of contributions by Kunsthal Gent as well as partner organisations.

The development programme ‘Permanently Practising’ Gent supports 6 artists, collectives and small organisations a year in their artistic development by means of scholarships.

Book presentations, screenings, workshops and lectures are regularly organised in connection with the exhibitions, residence programmes and partner programmes.
