Onomatopee Projects is a curating and editorially led public gallery and publisher that is particularly known for its self-initiated and transdisciplinary projects. Furthermore, Onomatopee also hosts the projects of progressive individuals as well as artist-run and institutional organizations.
Inspired by a DIY attitude and a hunger for critical elevation, Onomatopee Projects discusses and mediates a habitual visual sanctuary of pop culture, power, and other environments of visual consciousnesses alike. Over the course of its existence, the exhibition space has attracted an annual average of between 5.000 and 25.000 visitors. Throughout the year they attend many international art book fairs and regularly organize shows abroad. Taking the hub of Eindhoven as a starting point to mount globally relevant programs of various sizes and interests, Onomatopee produces visual criticality and advocates progressive culture: all to inspire in-depth experiences and to provide critical nourishment for all of us.
Each project – consisting of a boundary-pushing exhibition and an elevating publication– uses exceptional cultural attention as a source of wonder and knowledge that identifies a current experience of visual culture. Onomatopee’s award-winning publications and experimental exhibitions are known for their technically smart, well-balanced designed layout and progressive editing. Assembling surprising teams of artists, designers, academic thinkers, creative writers, architects, exhibition designers, graphic designers, and more; the exhibitions’ curatorial formats challenge contemporary topics in unconventional ways.
