NICC is a non-profit artists initiative run by and for artists, an artist-run space, which today celebrates its 22nd anniversary.
The core activity of the NICC is to promote, critique, and feed the debate on the development of the artistic practice and the framework within which this takes place. We do this by developing social actions and an exhibition program, that influence each other and go hand in hand.
After leading a nomadic existence for several years, NICC has its own space since the new year in the Leopoldstraat 55, named BOTANICC. The space will not only be used for exhibitions, lectures, film screenings, debates, ... but will also serve as the NICC headquarters, with a public archive. This means that they are currently working out a program at two locations, both the Nick Lodgers space (M HKA), where the exhibition 'As Close As That' will open this Thursday, and BOTANICC (Leopoldstraat 55).
BOTANICC is open when an event is organized in the space, these will be announced on their social media and website.
