The Affordable Art Fair 2015 gave, once again, The Artist and the Others the opportunity to showcase young talents through the Young Talent Exhibition, and create, next to it an educational program.
In the Lab project space, contemporary art issues of artists and the cultural scene are reflected thanks to a series of interviews with the exhibited artists, curator and collectors.
The Young Talent Exhibition
Displayed are artworks –never exhibited before- of 8 talented artists, graduate from academies in the Euregio. In the exhibition, the audience is invited to open up their eyes, reflect on how they see and look at artworks.
The exhibition is curated by Joep Vossebeld. By being an artist and curator at the same time, enables him to take into account at once the position of the artist regarding his artwork and the expectations of viewers when attending an exhibition. The exhibition mirrors the contemporary cultural scene on two levels. First, the relationship between the viewer and the artwork is highlighted.
How do we observe art? Are we aware of what we see?
On the other side, how much visibility does an artist need to be noticed? Is this visibility useful for the development of their career? Will the gained spotlight allow them to stand out?
We wish you a pleasant visit and let us know if you have noticed any difference…
