This is working on Springboard Art Fair & The Pool
In 2023, This Art Foundation gives a stage to the artists who graduated during the corona pandemic. For them we are organising the one-off Springboard Art Fair from 8 to 11 June 2023 in the Werkspoorkathedraal in Utrecht.The participants are selected and supervised by 20 coaches. These are art professionals such as curators, renowned artists and gallery owners. In collaboration with these coaches, artists themselves determine what their fair presentation will look like. Springboard will therefore not look like a conventional art fair, but a dynamic exhibition.
The fair is linked to The Pool, a new online platform where alumni can present themselves digitally. Create a profile and get in touch with art professionals and fellow artists. At The Pool, artists share their practice, build their network and share experiences.
Artist who graduated from a Dutch art academy or post-academic institution in 2019, 2020 or 2021 are invited to register for The Pool until 31 March in order to make a chance to be selected for Springboard Art Fair.
Participating in The Pool and Springboard Art Fair is completely free for all artists and a budget will be made available for artists to realise their booth at the fair.
Springboard Art Fair and The Pool are funded by Mondriaan Fonds and Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds.
