→ A new tradition is being created within the Dutch Art World! It is in close cooperation with Gemeentemuseum Den Haag that the Artworlds Foundation is about to introduce Summer Expo 2011. Following the Summer Exhibition of the Royal Academy in London and the Canvas Collection in Belgium, the Netherlands are to get their very own summer exposition, which will come about by means of open registration. This new initiative not only casts light on highly diverse artistic talents from the Netherlands but also provides an accurate update of the current state of affairs within the Dutch Art World. Artists of all artistic disciplines are welcome to participate: whether they make traditional drawings or create Modern Installation Art. Portrait, Landscape and Still Life are the subjects of the very first exhibition, which is to take place in 2011. Through these three classic genres, the exhibition presents a survey of contemporary Dutch art, in the broadest possible sense of the word, without making a distinction between the established and non-established art worlds in the Netherlands. Each distinct work of art has to speak for itself – and it is only its expressiveness and quality that count, since neither backgrounds nor artists responsible are mentioned during the selection. Qualifying Rounds are held at Museum Belvédère in Heerenveen, at SM’s (Stedelijk Museum ‘s–Hertogenbosch) and at the Westergasfabriek in Amsterdam. At this site 600 works will be presented online and, moreover, 250 works will be put on display at a unique survey exhibition which is to be held at Gemeentemuseum Den Haag from 9 July to 14 August 2011.
