Katrien Reist-Van Gelder


Katrien Reist-Van Gelder is a Brussels-based, freelance curator, art producer/facilitator and personal coach to many individual artists. She has a particular interest in alternative models of ‘management’ of both art institutions and artistic practices. She recently worked for the Institute of Human Activities of Renzo Martens and currently works as administrative director (ad interim) for Netwerk Aalst. She was co-founder of Jubilee, a platform for artistic research set up in 2012 and supporting the practices of Justin Bennett, Vincent Meessen, Katleen Vermeir, Ronny Heiremans, Jasper Rigole and Eleni Kamma. Jubilee seeks to develop sustainable models of research, development and production in which individual practices find space to grow according to their own logic. Katrien Reist was administrative director of Extra City Kunsthal in Antwerp from 2008 to 2012, and previously lived in Switzerland, where she worked as a visual arts curator and artistic director of various residency projects.
