Prospects & Concepts – Mondriaan Fund shows talent
Location: Van Nellefabriek, Van Nelleweg 1, Rotterdam
7 until 11 February 2018

In February 2018, the Mondriaan Fund organizes the sixth edition of the annual exhibition Prospects & Concepts during the international art fair Art Rotterdam at the Van Nelle Fabriek. The exhibition presents work by almost 80 visual artists who received a Stipendium for Emerging Artists in 2016 in order to start their careers.

For this edition, the Mondriaan Fund invited Stijn Huijts again to curate the exhibition. Huijts is the artistic director of the Bonnefantenmuseum in Maastricht.

The Mondriaan Fund organizes the exhibition Prospects & Concepts every year in order to boost the visibility of emerging artists. With Art Rotterdam just around the corner, art professionals and collectors, but also a broad number of interested individuals have the opportunity to become acquainted with the work of these promising artists. Moreover, the exhibition is a perfect opportunity to present the work produced thanks, in part, to a contribution from the Mondriaan Fund.

Dutch visual artists can apply for the Mondriaan Fund Talent Development Grant for Emerging Artists up to four years after graduating from an art academy or a comparable educational institute. The funding can be spent on all aspects associated with the realisation of new work, such as research, materials, and projects both in the Netherlands and abroad.

Publication and side program
At the exhibition a publication will be presented. With the exhibition the Mondriaan Fund organises an accompanying program. This will include guided tours, artist talks by visual artists and more.
