ArtOlive exhibition and award
The KNSM Island in the Oostelijk Haven Area sets the scene for the 2011 ArtOlive Young Talent event where the country’s most promising recent graduates from leading Dutch art academies will vie for 1,000 euros and the coveted ArtOlive Award. The most original, most outlandish, most creative wins the day.
The bright young sparks will exhibit their works from a diverse range of disciplines such as painting and ceramics before a panel of judges made up of members of the Dutch Association of Corporate Art Collections. To win is to have your name linked to ArtOlive, the largest online mixed arts gallery in the Netherlands.
The event was set up eleven years ago to promote talented art graduates and give them a professional leg-up by showcasing them to a large audience, not exclusively the art world. For the designers, it's a chance to introduce cut-throat industry types to their work and maybe even secure a break. For us, it's is a great opportunity to see the students at their finest while taking in tomorrow’s art and design trends.
