KINGS Artist-Run provides a location for contemporary art practice, supporting distinctive experimental projects by artists at all stages of their careers. KINGS assists and promotes the development of solo exhibitions, group and thematic projects, along with a program of events that includes performance, film screenings and talks.
The gallery program is the heart of KINGS Artist-Run and each year we look to deliver a program that investigates concepts current to contemporary art practice. The annual exhibition program at KINGS is formed around individual exhibition projects interspersed with thematic curatorial projects. Therefore each half-year of the exhibition and event program involves a thematic grouping of focused projects evoking and forming a discourse around specific subjects, supported by allied events and talks.
Notably, KINGS Artist-Run welcomes:

Emerging Writer Program 2017
In 2017, KINGS Artist-Run will re-launch the KINGS Emerging Writers’ Program. This program aims to provide a platform and opportunity for emerging arts writers to further critical discourse around the KINGS Exhibition Program.
The program will seek to connect writers with relevant practitioners from the Exhibition Program, in order to develop an accompanying piece of written text. Participants will receive critical feedback & editorial assistance in the development of their pieces, as well as the possibility for dialogue with the other writers and artists associated with KINGS. The writing developed throughout the six month period will be presented as catalogue material distributed within the gallery for the respective exhibition as well as available to download through the KINGS Artist-run website.
Any queries about the 2017 Emerging Writers’ Program can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
