Influenced by his background in theatre and previous experience as an artist, Krist Gruijthuijsen’s curatorial projects play an integral part in his artistic practice. Giving pride of place to the artist’s voice, he employs different models of representation to address the social and political role of the artist and to unearth urgencies, complexities, and pragmatics involved in the production, presentation, and reception of art within complex networks and systems of exchange. Expanding upon these lines of inquiry, Gruijthuijsen will present a selection of projects initiated over the past decade—ranging from exhibitions, lectures, and public programmes—that reflect upon the material conditions of art production and artists’ sustenance, considering how the ways in which artists socialise, dress, speak, think, and behave influence the making of an artwork as well as its relationship to the market.

Krist Gruijthuijsen is Director of KW Institute for Contemporary Art in Berlin and Course Director of the Master of Fine Arts Department at the Sandberg Institute in Amsterdam. From 2012 to 2016, he was Artistic Director of the Grazer Kunstverein, Graz, Austria. He is one of the co-founding directors of Kunstverein in Amsterdam and has organised numerous projects and exhibitions for institutions such as Utah Museum of Contemporary Art, Salt Lake City, United States (2013); Artists Space, New York, United States (2009); Manifesta 7, Trentino – South Tyrol, Italy (2008); Swiss Institute, New York, United States (2007); Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam and Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven, Netherlands (both 2006) amongst many others.
