In 2022, Centre A initiated the experiential project “The Living Room” for which the gallery space was transformed into a furnished living room space. Visitors had the opportunity to sit down in the makeshift living room to watch a selection of films and videos. By converting the gallery rooms into a (semi-)domestic space, we hope to demystify and challenge the oftentimes inaccessible nature of a contemporary art gallery. Throughout the exhibition-installation, we organized a series of public programs and events, such as dance parties, film screenings, and food sharing, to activate the living room and welcome guests of all backgrounds.

In 2023, we will bring back The Living Room with a new set of film programs. From April to June 2023, we will present a program titled Intimate Entanglements. Presented in partnership with Vtape, the films selected orient towards storytelling and the agency of the self or of the community, by way of musicality, rhythm, and tempo.

The films will be playing on loop during The Living Room 2.0. 

More to be revealed closer to the date.
