LIVE: Kunstinstituut Melly and Amarte Foundation in Concert

Live Book Tickets

We are delighted to present LIVE: Kunstinstituut Melly and Amarte Foundation in Concert 2023, a night of successive concerts weaving throughout the art exhibitions staged within our multi-story building. The concerts take place at Kunstinstituut Melly as part of Rotterdam's eleventh edition of Museum Night.

Flowing with the different rhythms and installations staged that night, audiences may be sitting-in as much as coming in and out of the galleries. Music and sound artists from diverse genres will be tasked to respond to the current exhibitions on show, creating or curating a musical act that resonate musically, conceptually, or aesthetically to the artworks or themes of the exhibitions.

Performers can apply through an open call (deadline 27 January 2023) and will be chosen by an expert peer panel that includes staff members of Amarte Foundation, Kunstinstituut Melly and artist Jennifer Tee. If you want to apply, please follow the form on Amarte's website.

The chosen performers will be performing within the art installations of the evolving group exhibition 84 STEPS, as well as in the solo exhibition Still Shifting, Mother Field of artist Jennifer Tee. Additionally, a musical performance takes place in Kunstinstituut Melly's ground-floor programming space, our MELLY cantina and bookshop.

LIVE is a yearly collaboration between Kunstinstituut Melly and Amarte Foundation. This event is developed as part of Melly X Amarte.

LIVE is specially organized in conjunction with Museumnacht 010 in Rotterdam, where more than 50 museums and cultural venues in the city are open late to the public. Tickets are available at
