Not Making Sense as Something Else is an exhibition series in which P/////AKT presents six solo exhibitions by emerging artists. The series offers talented young artists the opportunity to develop new work, gain experience in organizing a solo exhibition and to engage with a relevant audience. The participating artists are Bram de Jonghe, Dan Walwin, Bas van den Hurk & Hans Delmeulenaere, Claudia Pagès & Ulijona Odišarija, Roderick Hietbrink and Kasper Bosmans. Each is invited to develop new work to exhibit in P/////AKT. By supporting this initiative, Ammodo aims to contribute to both the artistic development of the artists and to the visibility of their work.
