Art in the Age of the Metaverse

The Hartwig Art Foundation and the Rijksakademie have launched a multi-year collaboration entitled Art in the Age of the Metaverse. The project began in February 2022 with a six-month research period in the field conducted by Leonardo Dellanoce and Arthur Steiner, from Memory Gems.

The international conference of Art in the Age of the Metaverse will take place on 10 – 12 March 2023 at De Balie Amsterdam. It will present a wide range of voices from the field, discuss the project’s first findings and enable exchange and public input to kick-start the next steps for this multi-year research.

In Fall 2023, the Hartwig Art Foundation and the Oude Kerk Amsterdam will jointly realise the first extensive European exhibition about Meredith Monk. The exhibition will showcase her music, notations, scores and drawings, sound recordings and films, and a set of immersive installations which translate themes and objects from her stage productions into new experiences. Completing the exhibition Monk develops a retrospective series of live concerts for Oude Kerk which allows for a full experience with her oeuvre. The exhibition of Meredith Monk is a collaboration in two acts at Oude Kerk, Amsterdam and Haus der Kunst München, together with the Hartwig Art Foundation. The exhibition is developed in close collaboration with Meredith Monk and The House Foundation for the Arts, New York.


The Hartwig Art Foundation and Performa, the internationally acclaimed organisation dedicated to live interdisciplinary performance by visual artists, are announcing a major institutional partnership.

We will collaborate on all levels, including the commissioning and creating of new works, the continued expansion of the Performa Archive and a fellowship program providing hands-on training for those working in the contemporary cross-media and performance field. More information: here

In June 2020 the Hartwig Art Foundation cooperated with the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam and De Balie in order to realise a unique exhibition of two seminal films by the acclaimed artist Arthur Jafa. The films were shown daily at De Balie from 21 – 25 June and on 28 June 2020 there was a conversation at De Balie in response to it, led by Jörgen Tjon A Fong, with – among others – artists Charl Landvreugd, Iris Kensmil and Raul Balai.

The Hartwig Art Foundation supported this exhibition financially and through the loan of Jafa’s film The White Album.
