No artist or curator starts at the MOMA. Most cultural activities first sprout in garages, flats, display cases, or other available residual spaces... This phenomenon occurs all over the world and the initiators of these exhibition spaces possess a boundless imagination and explore the limits of what is possible. Be it in a freezer compartment or on a cat scratching post, no space proves too “impossible” to be declared an art space!

This exhibition aims to highlight “exhibition spaces” that often operate in the shadows but are nevertheless an indispensable part of the art world. Lichtekooi aims to highlight and celebrate these artists’ initiatives and, above all, their generosity toward their fellow artists.

For this group exhibition, Lichtekooi is showing 9 "impossible" exhibition spaces that in turn present their own group or solo exhibition.
