About us

Onomatopee Projects, founded in 2006 and directed by Freek Lomme since, is a curating and editorially led public gallery and publisher that is particularly known for their self-initiated and transdisciplinary projects. Furthermore, they also host the projects of progressive individuals as well as artist-run and institutional organisations.

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 10 year 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 organise 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.

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 design and 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.
