Incubate is about more than music alone. Besides the music line-up the festival also maintains an extensive fine art program. Next to leading and controversial artist like Santiago Sierra and Leah Capaldi, there is also a free-of-charge exposition with art by more than 300 artists, the largest exposition of its kind. Young Brabant artists were invited to create new work, an American artist group will start conversations about capitalism with random people on the street and during the festival week hundreds portraits of mothers of Tilburg will hang throughout the city als part of the worldwide art project Inside Out.
Open Source Expo
Between April and June Incubate gave everyone the opportunity to submit work for the Open Source Expo. all types of works were allowed and no one would be dismissed. Of all the notified work curator Merijn Denkers selected one work of each artist to exhibit during Incubate. It attracted more than three hundred submissions whose work can be seen for free in de Koepelhal (photo) in Tilburg, next to the train station.
“Three times as many artists as last year”
Vincent Koreman, artistic director of Incubate: “The Open Source Expo was a huge success last year. This is also reflected in the fact that this year three times as many artists participate. I am very proud that we can present this alongside renowned artists such as Santiago Sierra and Leah Capaldi. I can’t wait until September.”
Waag will participate at the Open Source Expo with our Open Design exhibit that we made for the Rotterdam Designprize exhibition last year. Everything that was left over from the exhibition at Boijmans in Rotterdam will be shipped to Tilburg again, to form the word OPEN again in 121 paper blocks. So, if you want to collect your own Open Design instructions and quotes, visit the Koepelhal in Tilburg.
