The work Shows by Marinus Boezem is shown in a seperate section of the fair called Art Unlimited.
Galleries and international art fairs can apply for the grant program Participation International Art Fairs to exhibit work by living Dutch artists at renowned international fairs. They may also apply for the production of new work by Dutch artists in a separate section of an art fair. The grant is intended to contribute to booth rental or, where there is a separate exhibition at the fair, as a contribution to the presentation and/or production costs. The aim of this grant program is to help strengthen the international position of contemporary art from the Netherlands.
