Het Hem presents its inaugural Chapter 1NE, featuring a group exhibition, Boxing Clinic and public program that highlight the institution’s commitment to bringing art and community closer together, as well as its focus on an inclusive, interdisciplinary and immersive cultural experience.
The Boxing Clinic, a ten-week-long intensive training program orchestrated by seven-time boxing world champion, Michele Aboro. Boxing is approached as a holistic practice where participants are trained, not only physically, but also mentally and creatively. Aspiring athletes with various levels of proficiency are invited to apply until May 12th. On Saturday, August 31st, the clinic culminates in a spectacular Boxing Gala, where the audience can watch the participants compete for a championship belt, combined with exclusive dance, rap and other performances. The Boxing Clinic and Gala are hosted in a commissioned art installation designed by visual artist, Gabriel Lester.
