What are Groningen artists currently working on? Come and see it in the exhibition from 15 to 18 September in the Akerk. No fewer than a hundred visual artists, designers and illustrators from the municipality of Groningen will present their work in this extensive exhibition. Entrance is free.
“It is the first time that a 'state of affairs' of the Groningen art scene has been shown on such a scale,” says project leader Sander Vermeulen of Kunstpunt Groningen. “With this exhibition, we want to introduce the widest possible audience to the various artists, designers and illustrators from our municipality.”
All hundred participants submit one work from their oeuvre for the exhibition; a work of art as a business card. Both starting professional artists and more established names are part of the selection. The exhibition will consist of a diverse mix of artworks: paintings, objects, performance art, drawings, photography and video art.
100x ART IN THE AKERK is the result of the project Lucht 2.0. With this project, Kunstpunt Groningen wants to support artists again in their professional practice, on behalf of the municipality of Groningen (following the project Lucht in 2021), made possible by the corona funds from the government.
The 100 participating artists, designers and illustrators are:
