The project space G10 at Grafenstraße 10 / corner of Rheinstraße is an open art space that is regularly revisited with young positions. In this lively window space, works of visual art and video installations are shown and performances take place. A diverse and varied program is presented in a regular 5-week rhythm. The artistic works are carefully selected and specifically requested by the curatorial team. Young regional as well as international artist are supported, who deal with socio-critical topics or create conceptual new works. G10 wants to research, explore, question and experience contemporary exhibition concepts together with artists and viewers. The young positions are intended to refresh the city, which is dominated by large institutions, and to contribute to a broad art discourse.
The project space G10 has floor space of 20m2 with a 4 x 5 meter window area in close proximity to Darmstadt's Luisenplatz. Through the large window, art is brought directly to the general public.
Unlike large institutions and museums, the space reaches the general public directly on the street and removes the barriers that prevent the pu-blic from engaging with art. The promotional aesthetics of the space are used deliberately: In contrast to the fast pace of consumer society, the selected positions are meant to make people think and pause. At the beginning of each exhibition, a vernissage will take place, where the pre- sented artists will be present and they can exchange ideas with the invited audience. At the end of the runtime a finissage is organized, in which the course of the show is discussed and the feedback of the audi-ence is gathered. During the rest of the exhibition period, the space is closed and lit all day.
By means of information in the shop window, it is pointed out that appointments for closer inspection can be made by appointment.
In addition, information on the works presented and the project space itself can be accessed via a QR code.
Contact options for viewing appointments can be found on site or here.
