Curated by Martijn Lucas Smit, NIEUWE VIDE, Haarlem, the Netherlands.

HOSTED II is an exhibition featuring eight artists based in the Netherlands. It is the second part of an exhibition exchange between two not-for-profit art spaces, PARTICIPANT INC, New York and NIEUWE VIDE, Haarlem, the Netherlands. This group exhibition is derived from the recently published book, Van Stuk/Off Track, in which NIEUWE VIDE presents and explores itself. The book will be on view at PARTICIPANT INC, together with the work of participating artists travelling to New York with Martijn Lucas Smit, who has been the main curator of NIEUWE VIDE for many years.

HOSTED is an exchange between two similarly artist-driven spaces. American and Dutch artists are confronted by each other in a way that can best be described as a blind date. Their correspondence via email, with the as yet unknown outcome and mutual interest and generosity toward each other, is part of the project. Last November, the first part took place at NIEUWE VIDE with a group exhibition organized by PARTICIPANT INC, including Angelblood (Rita Ackermann and Lizzi Bougatsos), Charles Atlas, Michel Auder, Kathe Burkhart, Kim Gordon, Lovett/Codagnone, Rachel Lowther, Virgil Marti, and Laura Parnes.
