Sint Lucas School of Arts Antwerp brings together contributions from a number of researchers, research groups, as well as the Master of Research in Art and Design. Students, alumni and external artists are involved as well. Leitmotif is the experimentation with retranslations to other carriers and mediums, as well as the questioning of presenting, representing and visualising research(-related) projects. The artistic approach is suggestive, groping, process-inclined, hypothetical, shifting, dialogical. In a unique way, the exhibition space is hereby activated into 'conversation space'.
Horizontal Drawing Presents: TRANSFORM TRANSLATE TRANSMISSION 24.04.2018-29.04.2018
Presentation 24-29 April
A selection of various drawings, prints, books, a wall drawing by Bart Lodewijks, work by Timo van Grinsven and more.
Symposium 24 April
The symposium Transform Translate Transmission investigates the relationship between drawing and other media in the practice of artists, working in the field of sound, social practice and sculpture. In which stage does drawing play a role in their process, as conceptual framework, as reflection, a reference to be translated in another discipline? What is the interaction within the range of media being used?
Each lecture will focus on another aspect of these questions with a special focus on the transformative quality of drawing.

Yellow Press - 21.05.2018-09.06.2018
YellowPress is the publication platform of St Lucas School of Arts Antwerp. YellowPress lends its services to other researchers and/or platforms. It also studies new publication forms for artistic research in the current media landscape. The name YellowPress is an allusion to so-called Yellow journalism. Yellow journalism is characterized by misleading news, sensationalist pictures, screaming headlines and strong sympathy for the underdog. With an ironic wink to this trivial form of journalism, YellowPress wishes to take the attitude of the professional dilettante — between professional and amateur — as its starting point.
Sleeperhold Publications - The Ring - 21.05.2018-09.06.2018
The Ring is an ongoing project that Common Room has been pursuing over the past few years. It consists of a series of circular forms installed in various contexts by different actors. By attributing a similar object to multiple authors, each iteration of the ring further complicates the idea of authorship and simultaneously strengthens the network of connections between the various participants. These social connections are essential to the project.
Master of Research in Art & Design - 21.05.2018-09.06.2018
The Infinite Conversations is an ongoing series of dialogues conducted with alumni from the Master of Research in Art & Design at St Lucas School of Arts Antwerp. Revisiting their practice, Wesley Meuris and Pieter Vermeulen seek to spell out the topics, preoccupations and methodologies at play in their current research as artists or designers. As part of the LODGERS programme at M HKA, publication platform YellowPress (Ward Heirwegh) will give shape to these conversations (in image and text), which will them be unfolded in the exhibition space. Several artist talks will take place over the entire period.
With: Isabel Fredeus, Adrijana Gvozdenović, Craig Havens and Egon Van Herreweghe

On May 27 (2-4 PM) and June 3 (2-4 PM) Ludivine and the educational team of M HKA organize a workshop for children from 6 to 12 years old. This in order to learn more about the image preferences, perceptions and experiences of children anno 2018. During this workshop children will participate in the observational study ‘image, imagination & relaxation’. The children talk about the presented work, play an interactive relaxation game and draw to make their own imagination vivid.
