Halfway through the year the students of the Master Program in Fine Arts organize a number of short exhibitions with their own work, in the former gymnasium on the campus. Each GYM (Generating Young Masters) is coached by a guest professor, giving a lecture or an artist talk prior to the opening.
Every year in Spring, the students of the third Bachelor year in Fine Arts organize an ambitious 'Art in Open Space' exhibition. Each developing individual projects, together they investigate the potential of a topical theme and a place; the latter can be either one of the districts of Hasselt, a remote place, or even a location outside the country.
Throughout the year the multifunctional space De Kooi offers space for research, experimental setups and exhibitions by professors and students. Its program, which is decided on by the teaching staff, is characterized by flexibility and non-hierarchic diversity.
At the end of the year, in June, all students of the Master Program present their graduation projects during the final show, called EXIT.
The autonomous exhibition space KRIEG, founded in 2016, presents annually three solo exhibitions, both with promising experimental artists as well as with underexposed reference artists. KRIEG is an integral part of the academic activities of PXL-MAD School of Arts.
