The First Annual Otis College of Art & Design and Sandberg Institute Exchange program Exhibition
About Kunstvlaai 7
Begun in 1997, the art fair De Kunstvlaai was started by the Sandberg Institute Amsterdam as an alternative to the De KunstRai fair of established galleries. It has since grown substantially, and is now a well-attended art fair with an attendance record of about 12,000. As part of Otis College of Art and Design's participation in this event, Sojung Kwon, a Los-Angeles based artist and the first participant in the Otis-Sandberg Institute Exchange Fellowship, is curating an exhibition featuring seven Otis alumni and current MFA candidates, as well as producing a catalog for the event. De Kunstvlaai is occupying the Westergasfabriek at a time of other concurrent fairs and exhibitions in the Netherlands.
