Exhibition initiative 84 STEPS
Kunstinstituut Melly was conceived as an art house in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, with a mission to present and discuss contemporary art and theory. They commission art, organize exhibitions, publish, and develop educational and collaborative initiatives. With 84 STEPS, Kunstinstituut Melly launches a long-term initiative staging art installations, new commissions, and event-based activities.
84 STEPS is a new initiative, for which an entire floor in Kunstinstituut Melly is transformed to feature projects at the intersection of art and education. This transformation of a white-cube gallery into a dynamic space for socializing art follows the 2018 makeover of the ground-floor gallery, MELLY. The name - 84 STEPS - marks the distance from the ground-floor to the third-floor galleries, where the initiative is sited. The first edition of 84 STEPS will feature immersive art installations and activity-based art projects by Afra Eisma, the Feminist Health Care Research Group, Moosje M Goosen and Suzanne Weenink, Raja’a Khalid, Lisa Tan, Domenico Mangano & Marieke van Rooy and R A Walden.
From April 9, 2021 to March 20, 2022, programming within these installations will give attention to issues surrounding mental health.
