Activities NAC foundation - NAC Foundation (New Studios Charlois) is an independent, non-profit self-management organization founded in 2004 by artists and engaged citizens from the district of Charlois, in the South of Rotterdam. NAC was developed to manage free work and living space for (young) visual artists. Its aim is to stimulate, initiate and produce cultural activities and thereby generate a sense of public life in the city of Rotterdam with a special attention for the district of Charlois. This is done by (1) generating, managing and offering low-cost studio spaces or spaces needed to support an artistic practice for a short or longer period, (2) by promoting and organizing the participation of artists or other cultural producers in social and urban processes and in collaborations with public organizations, (3) and by stimulating artistic activities aimed on the society and the development of the public realm.
projects in Charlois 1991-2006

The Black Room#01

Locatie: site specific
In samenwerking met: Galerie Espace Larith - Chambéry (FR)

Quarantine stands for isolation, a separation from society.
The artist recognizes a similar situation in the studio, in which he/she voluntarily isolates himself from the environment, to be free. The Black Room is a scale model of an exhibition space in which I lock myself up for a certain amount of time.

Retro-Perspective: Charlois-Saint-Dénis

Locatie: HCE Galerie
In samenwerking met: HCE Galerie

The exhibition Retro-Perspective; CHARLOIS > SAINT-DENIS by Kamiel Verschuren is both a reflection on the different art projects realized in Charlois (Rotterdam-NL) between 1991 and 2023, as it is intended to be an opening to think about projects and a possible artistic engagement to Saint-Denis in the future.

S'Sens Station / Social Ecoduct
with Mladen Suknovic, students and inhabitants of Hauts-de-Saint-Aubin

On the invitation of the inhabitants, the artists created an artistic proposal to activate and socialize a space above the A11 motorway, a curious course, a reality-movie set, made up of wooden structures, roads still under construction and an abandoned station.

Growing Space

Locatie: Eelkmanstraat Wielewaal
In samenwerking met: with Carmen José/Wilma Kun, supported by NAC foundation, CBK Rotterdam and Charlois Speciaal 2020

The aim of the project (in times of Corona) was to create an independent presentation space and to financially support artists. The project consists of a glass garden house/greenhouse, placed on a wooden platform and connected to the environment by 4 footpaths. The greenhouse is not accessible to visitors, but one can look inside and walk around it.
Since July 2020 over 75 exhibitions been made.
