Amant is a non-profit arts organization fostering experimentation and dialogue through exhibitions, public programs, and residencies at its two locales: the New York City borough of Brooklyn and the Tuscan village of Chiusure in the heart of the Siena province. As a process-oriented platform, Amant arrives at a moment when the relationship between institutions and wider developments within arts and culture is being revisited—and challenged. We pursue yearly thematics that emanate from a diversity of social and political contexts, supporting shared modes of production and decision-making. More than “disciplines” we focus on “practices”, offering artists the time and conditions to crucially engage with their work. Amant provides a public forum that supports both established and mid-career artists working across diverse creative fields.
Amant is an artistic and research platform based in East Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The campus is comprised of four buildings spread across two blocks. 315 Maujer is the location of Amant’s main public entrance, welcome desk and exhibition spaces, as well as the private offices for Amant staff. 932 Grand is Amant’s main gallery for exhibitions and projects. It also hosts a Café (opening soon) and Bookstore, offering both a cozy lounge in which to relax over a book and a coffee, as well as an active space for live readings, workshops, and presentations. Géza, located at 306 Maujer, is Amant’s lab oriented to art-making and collective discussion. Géza is dedicated to performance, sound, spoken word, and expanded approaches to the moving image. 306 Maujer also hosts an independent residency program with a library and artist studios.
