ELIA Welcomes New Member: Hoger Instituut voor Schone Kunsten
ELIA Welcomes Our Newest Member: Hoger Instituut voor Schone Kunsten (HISK) - Vlaanderen vzw
HISK, located in Ghent, Belgium, offers a post-graduate course in visual arts and provides young artists from Belgium and abroad with a workspace of their own and pedagogical guidance for a duration of two years.
At the end of these two years, the participating artists receive a certificate as a ‘Laureate of the Higher Institute for Fine Arts.’ Since 1997, 269 laureates from 45 countries have graduated from the institute.
The emphasis at the HISK is on individual practice and close contact with a community of distinguished visiting lecturers - artists, curators, critics and scholars. Based on diversity of artistic practices and positions, the unique HISK concept gives the artists every opportunity for critical research within a broader aesthetic, social and cultural context.
ELIA is glad to have this institution as part of our growing network!
