Hoogtij #62 | RNDR, WYSIWYG

Hoogtij is The Hague’s contemporary art route. During HOOGTIJ#62 on 25 September between 7-11 pm you can visit more than 20 art locations. The Grey Space exhibits installations by RNDR and WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get).

‘re:place’ is a new real-time interactive installation by RNDR that will camouflage and erase all persons passing by the windows of The Grey Space in the Middle. Open 24/7, the installation is a reaction to the new reality we live in since the start of COVID-19 and the measures taken by governments worldwide to limit the number of infections: ‘social distancing’, lockdowns, and (self-) quarantine.

Cinema Platform WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) offers another option for watching film from the outside in. As WYSIWYG enjoys questioning and playing with other ways of presenting film, this screening investigates the ambiguous space between a solution and a temporary fix. ‘Screen reflection’ shows the works of Mark Prendergast and Jean-Baptiste Castel

The Hague Contemporary Art Weekend

The Hague is full of experimental artists’ initiatives, art spaces, galleries and exciting museums. To celebrate this, the third edition of The Hague Contemporary Art Weekend will take place from 10 – 12 September. In collaboration with more than 18 art institutions and initiatives from The Hague, and together with the Royal Academy of Art The Hague (KABK Den Haag) Graduation Show, the weekend will be filled with events, exhibitions, performances, openings, art tours, artist talks and more. The Grey Space in the Middle will present the following program:

Thursday
10:00 – 23:00 (ongoing) – RNDR – re:place (installation)
10:00 – 23:00 (ongoing) – WYSIWYG – Screen Reflection (installation)

10:00 – 02:30 (ongoing) – WYSIWYG – Screen Reflection (installation)
21:00 – 02:30 – Radio Tonka (music, find the program here)

Karel van Laere is a performance and video artist who explores bodily boundaries and tests his own endurance. A recurring theme in his work is the opposition between the human body and technological systems. ‘Casting‘ is a sculptural installation, specifically realized for The Hague Contemporary Art Weekend. In this work, he explores current issues such as the human right to breathe clean air, the present topic of distancing and isolation, and the connection between safety and invisibility. ‘Casting‘ has been made possible with the support of We Are Public / In Art We Trust, Stroom Den Haag and The Grey Space in the Middle.

‘re:place’ is a new real-time interactive installation by RNDR that will camouflage and erase all persons passing by the windows of The Grey Space in the Middle. Open 24/7, the installation is a reaction to the new reality we live in since the start of COVID-19 and the measures taken by governments worldwide to limit the number of infections: ‘social distancing’, lockdowns, and (self-) quarantine. ‘re:place‘ has been made possible with the support of the City of The Hague and The Grey Space in the Middle.

Cinema Platform WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) offers another option for watching film from the outside in. As WYSIWYG enjoys questioning and playing with other ways of presenting film, this screening investigates the ambiguous space between a solution and a temporary fix. ‘Screen reflection’ shows the works of Mark Prendergast and Jean-Baptiste Castel.

The Grey Space reopens with cafe and outdoor terrace

The Grey Space opens again in June as cafe and outdoor terrace!

“A computer processor is described as idle when it is not being used by any program”

We have been idle in the last months, working on making sure The Grey Space will live and grow beyond these radical times. We are more than ready to leave the idle state. One step at a time. First things first, we want to see all of you again! You are welcome for drinks and bites on our sunny terrace. We’re also working on a small program of events to present to you in this setting which we hope to announce soon.

Opening hours:

Wednesday 16-23h
Thursday 16-23h
Friday 16-23h
Saturday 16-23h
Sunday 14-20h
13 Mar 2020 – 01 May 2020

The Grey Space closed until further notice

To our audience,
our growing community,

It’s silent.

In correspondence with the guidelines set by the Dutch government to prevent the further spread of COVID-19, all events until June 1st will be postponed. The Grey Space is inevitably empty and will remain closed until further notice.

In 2017 we started building this space inspired by something David Bowie said: “The idea that the piece of work is not finished until the audience comes to it and adds their own interpretation. What the piece of art is about is the grey space in the middle.”

Without our audience and the growing community that you are to us, there is no grey space in the middle. We entered a financially fragile state in which we choose to lay low. Temporarily invisible to all of you. Knowing that we are not alone, that you are all still out there, we imagine what could have been and we fight for what we have built over the past years. Out of sight to all of you, we are here, continuing to grow in this delicate state.

We ask for your patience and regard for your safety and that of the people around you. Also, please consider supporting other people and initiatives during this time in any way you can.

Stay safe and healthy.

The Grey Space in the Middle

We’ll inform you about the continuation of our program here and through our Instagram and Facebook.
