From 9 to 12 February 2023, the Mondriaan Fund is organizing a new edition of Prospects during Art Rotterdam at the Van Nelle Factory. The exhibition shows the work of 73 starting artists (born and /or based in the Netherlands). All artists received a financial contribution from the Mondriaan Fund in 2021 to kickstart their career. Among the artists are Clara Amaral (DAI, 2019) and Aldo Esparza Ramos (DAI, 2018).
The Mondriaan Fund organizes the ‘Prospects’ exhibition each year to give the visibility of starting artists an extra boost. Due to the proximity of Art Rotterdam, art professionals and collectors, but also a wide group of interested parties, have the opportunity to become acquainted with the work of these promising artists.
The exhibition is also an excellent opportunity to show what has been achieved in part thanks to a contribution from the Mondriaan Fund. An Artist Start contribution is intended for starting artists who have been working professionally for a minimum of 1 to a maximum of 4 years. The contribution can be used for anything related to the development of work and art practice, such as research, material, equipment and projects at home or abroad.
Starting and emerging artists will show their work in the Distribution Center of the Van Nelle factory. The range varies from photography to carpets, from video to paintings, and from performances to sculptures.
