The next IHME Festival will be held in spring 2018. The IHME Project 2018 will be announced in autumn 2017.
Each year, IHME Contemporary Art Festival invites an internationally recognized visual artist or group of artists to make a temporary work of art, the IHME Project, in public space. The way the IHME Project is to be carried out, along with its form and location, are jointly determined by the Foundation and the selected artist.
