Mariette Dölle is programme director of TENT., Rotterdam since mid 2006. TENT. is a strong supporter and promotor of Rotterdam based arts. In its programme of exhibitions and events, TENT. examines the relationship between local art, the city of Rotterdam, and the wider world, and particularly, the motivations of the artists in this regard. Artists Wendelien van Oldenborgh, Libia Perez & Olafur Olofsson and Katarina Zdjelar were invited for soloprojects in the past years. Previously, Dölle was coordinator of the long-term art project BEYOND in the new Utrecht district Leidsche Rijn (www. beyondutrecht.nl), for which artists including Stanley Brouwn, Dominique Gonzales Foerster, and Bik Van der Pol have realized temporary buildings in recent years. She co-organized the open-air exhibition Pursuit of Happiness (summer 2005, including Barbara Visser, Esra Ersen, and Erik van Lieshout). She has been a member of the Impakt Residence Panel since 2007.
