What's on

SEA Foundation provides residence programmes for artistic research, experimentation, and production out of which an ongoing public programme emerges.

The programme consists of exhibitions, screenings, talks, workshops, and publications. It focuses on challenging perceptions of what constitutes as contemporary art, and also, to bring the audience closer to the practices that motivate to produce contemporary art.

With this urgency as a point of departure, we aim to create a better understanding of how, in nowadays society, contemporary art can be defined in an operant and lucid way.


SEA Foundation is a not-for-profit, artist-led organisation, We are benefitting from collective support and a warm network. SEA Foundation seeks support from public and private sector partners, whose support is vital to the success of our work. Go to the donation page and care for art by giving too.
