Revisions of the Curatorial Programme
AMMODO ✕ De Appel
September 2013 - September 2016

For over twenty years De Appel, through its Curatorial Programme, has offered six future curators from different continents the opportunity to learn the skills that are necessary to becoming a curator. For eight months the participants attend workshops and seminars with tutors and guest lecturers, research case studies, take business trips and meet art professionals. De Appel wants the programme to be closely linked to current events. Therefore, starting in 2013, a project was launched to revise and develop the Curatorial Programme during the following years. Ammodo supports this revision of the Curatorial Programme because the programme contributes to the development of young curators at an international level.

Close-Up
AMMODO ✕ EYE Film Museum
31 January 2016 - 22 May 2016

In the exhibition Close-Up, EYE Film Museum presents recent film and video works and installations by a new generation of artists working in the Netherlands. The medium of film has undergone a major development in recent years: the relatively young generation explores the boundaries between film, video and visual arts and is no longer tied to a single medium. The exhibition includes work by Melanie Bonajo (1978), Felix Burger (1982), Janis Rafa (1984) and David Verbeek (1980). Ammodo supports Close-Up to contribute to the development of contemporary artists by offering them the opportunity to demonstrate recent work within a museum context where the work can be displayed under optimal conditions at a high technical level.

Next Level
AMMODO ✕ FOAM
August 2015 - present

Since 2015 Foam presents a four-year exhibition series Next Level during the Unseen Photo Fair. Foam has chosen Next Level as a way of offering promising talented artists the opportunity to develop new work and increase their public recognition. The museum annually offers one artist the opportunity to organise his/her first major solo exhibition. Selection is conditional upon the artist having already proved him/herself and showing that he/she is innovative in the use of the medium of photography. The first two artists who have been invited to take part in the series are Anne De Vries (The Hague, 1977) and Melanie Bonajo (Heerlen, 1978). They have been asked to create new work for the exhibition. Ammodo supports Next Level because the series contributes to the creation of new work, the development of the participating artists and the display of their work to an international audience.

Guest Advisors Circle
AMMODO ✕ Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten
2016 - present

The Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten focuses on developing talent through a two-year residency programme. Artists from around the world have the opportunity to work in optimal conditions to deepen and broaden their artistic practice. During their stay at the Rijksakademie the resident artists are supported by advisors on artistic, technical and theoretical levels. In addition to permanent advisors the Rijksakademie also uses the Guest Advisors Circle. This additional body is set up to focus attention on current developments in the arts and to address the interests and concerns of the individual artists. Ammodo supports the Guest Advisors Circle and by so doing contributes to the development of contemporary visual artists.

Nine recently developed works are displayed. Ammodo supports Ed Atkins: Recently Ouija to contribute to the development of Ed Atkins and the recognition of his work.

A year at the Stedelijk: Tino Sehgal
AMMODO ✕ Stedelijk Museum
1 January - 31 December 2015

The exhibition A year at the Stedelijk: Tino Sehgal is the first major retrospective of British/German artist Tino Sehgal (1976 ) at the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam. For each month of the year, one or more of Sehgal’s works or ‘situations’ will be presented at various locations in the museum.

Sehgal creates ‘situations’ within the museum space, in which interpreters enact choreographed actions and occasionally converse with visitors. The exhibition will include the situations This is propaganda (2002), Kiss (2002) and This occupation (2005). Ammodo provides support to A year at the Stedelijk: Tino Sehgal in order to make this unique retrospective possible.
