S.M.A.K. will be showing ‘Museum for a Small City’ (2015) by Richard Venlet (b. 1964, Hamilton, Australia) for the entire year. The abstracted design, inspired by an unrealised museum project by Mies van der Rohe, will function as a platform for the collection and art-historical research, as well as a place in which to initiate dialogues about contemporary museum activities. Richard Venlet will formulate new collection displays and work with S.M.A.K.’s extensive archive. These material presentations will be complemented by performances and a lecture programme, including the ‘Curatorial Lectures’ in collaboration with the Curatorial Studies programme at KASK/School of Arts van HoGent.
