10dence gallery - multi-disciplinairy expressions of art

10dence art collective

By means of concept, the 10dence gallery profiles itself as a multidisciplinary nucleus for innovative creative endeavors, where the participants in collaboration, generate artistic productions which encompass an unprecedented panoply of works of art and the collective surveys the cross-current of activities that constituted the artistic output.

As a contemporary project space, focusing on bringing together innovative creative individuals from around the world, the 10dence gallery|studio aims on diversity and highlights and respects and expects the individuality of all individuals involved.

10dence gallery|studio explores, nurtures and promotes the art that happens when connections are made and knowledge is shared - across the boundaries of established art-world institutions and their markets.

Multi-disciplinary artist Ron Weijers initiated the foundation of the 10dence gallery|studio in 2008.
Stimulating the involvement of artists and musicians within the development process of creative projects, had already become common practice for Weijers. Within his earlier Global Frequency Music projects and releases from the year 2001 on, he involved a vast group of Dutch and American musicians. His background and long years of experience as a creative director within an international communication environment, generated the basic ingredients to work with a large variety of creative minds. He not only learned to work with creative people and to achieve the aimed for results in a creative sense, more important, he achieved to keep these creative individuals connected to his situation. The release of the Global Frequency - Tabasco Tabernacle audio-visual artproject and the to this project related viewings, presentations and group exhibitions with the work of the artists involved at the Jazzart shows of the North Sea Jazz Festival 2007 in Ahoy’ Rotterdam, galerie Le Cocon in Hamburg, the PPJazz 2007 exhibition in Pand Paulus in Schiedam, the Live Performers Meeting LPM-festival at Linux club in Rome, the ShortFilm festival in Bolzano, State of the Image/DOEK! festival in Arnhem, NuMoon night labs at Lantaren/Venster in Rotterdam, the Pecha Kucha Roadshow at Stedelijk Museum Schiedam, the Drvkkery gallery in Middelburg and La Notta Bianca at the Palazzo delle Esposizioni in Rome created the base for developments that resulted into the foundation of the 10dence gallery|studio. Due to his organizational involvement within the boards of the art foundations Kunstwerkt and Pictura in Dordrecht, over the years, Weijers developed his network and successfully organized group-exhibition projects like PPJazz, twee(2)strijd voor 12, the Voynich project and Poligious Issues (amongst others). Within these projects he clearly developed the artistic connections and relations that would form the basic ingredients and network for 10dence gallery|studio project space en it's activities.

Within the concepts developed by the 10dence gallery|studio projects, the reflection of international, artistic, technical, mental, social, environmental, psycholical, literair, photographic, political, cinematographic, graphical, architectural, musical, racial, religious, visual and commercial issues will amongst others set the expressive tone. Shortly, there will be no restrictions to the ways of creative expression by the collective tolerated regarding the message to be send out to the spectator. A group of artistic minds, working towards the realization of their artistic ideals with no strings attached whatsoever. The artistic relations with networks like Carl Heywards' Global Art Project (GAP) and the select group of mixed media artists connected in the core of this group, as wel as the international Neutral-ism community (Francesco Perilli) with participants from more than 50 countries and the collaboration and support of networks like the US based High Art Fridays (HAF) coordinated by Ron Shelton, generate the spinal cord of the activities and creative endeavors to come.
