Every year, V2_ invites a small group of up-and-coming artists to spend their summer at V2_Lab for an intense short-term residency. During these so-called Summer Sessions, the selected artists are given the opportunity to develop an artwork in close collaboration with V2_'s expert developers, curators and project managers.
This year’s Summer Sessions welcomed three individual artists and one artist duo into V2_Lab to realize new art projects. By holding the Summer Sessions residencies in parallel, V2_ aimed to promote a creative synergy between the selected artists. The outcome of this process will be presented during Test_Lab: Summer Sessions 2012. In the Test_Lab tradition, the projects will be demonstrated live and the audience will be invited to ‘test’ the artworks hands-on.
The evening will be closed with summer cocktails and a live sound performance by TokTek.
