SEA Foundation provides residence programmes for artistic research, experimentation, and production out of which an ongoing public program emerges. The program consists of exhibitions, screenings, talks, workshops, and publications.
SEA Foundation is a not-for-profit, artist-led organisation in Tilburg the Netherlands established in 2011. Over the past few years SEA Foundation became known as an umbrella label for, support, solo exhibitions, art projects, exchanges and publications. From 2013 we also run an Artist in Residence programme – AiR Tilburg – which attracts artists, curators and writers to residencies that include bespoke mentoring.
In all our activities we are fueled by visual arts. Transgressing the boundaries between disciplines and always putting the context and the idea before the medium. By working in different cultural contexts, the foundation generates discussion, exposing and intervening within, as well as being part of networks that concentrate on eminent issues. SEA Foundation aims to be a cultural catalyst in the working lives of art professionals.
