Arda van Tiggelen, Advisor TransArtists

Arda van Tiggelen, Advisor TransArtists

I am a Dutch curator based in Amsterdam. With a background in art history (University of Amsterdam), I specialise in commissioning new, site-specific works by emerging contemporary visual artists. Previously I worked at the Amsterdam exhibition space W139; at Documenta 14 in Kassel, Germany (2017); and at a local art initiative called VHDG in Leeuwarden, Friesland. Also, I shaped the exhibition and artist-in-residence programme there during and after the city's European Cultural Capital year in 2018. I furthermore initiated international collaboration projects with partners in Poland and Hungary, and am presently developing a prospective project in Russia: a travelling artist-in-residence through Siberia. As an advisor at TransArtists, I give individual artists and art organisations advice and information about international artist-in-residencies, edit the TransArtists website and online magazine Station to Station, and I investigate the current practices and newly emerging forms of artistic residencies.
