Stroom Invest Week 2020

21 t/m 25 september 2020
Stroom Den Haag, Hogewal 1-9, Den Haag

De PRO Invest subsidie is een belangrijk instrument dat jonge, pas afgestudeerde kunstenaars in staat stelt zich verder te ontwikkelen, onder meer in hun actieve betrokkenheid bij de Haagse kunstwereld. De Stroom Invest Week bestaat, behalve uit de gespreksavond, uit een programma van atelierbezoeken, presentaties en informele ontmoetingen met het doel de zichtbaarheid van Haagse kunstenaars te vergroten, reflectie op hun werk te bieden en in het verlengde daarvan de bekendheid met hun werk te stimuleren.

He engages with subjects within ecological, economic, social and political domains, whereby he pursuits open questions about how we could shape our (possible) futures.

Kunstenaars die binnenkort werk opleveren zijn bijvoorbeeld: Anne de Vries, Kasper Bosmans en Nicole Eisenman. Recent stonden onder andere op de longlist Francis Upritchard, Lubaina Himid en Ibrahim Mahama. In 2019 organiseerde hij een tentoonstelling bij W139 met o.a. Thomas Hirschhorn, Meschac Gaba en Aernout Mik. Eind 2019 maakte hij met Julia Mullié een tentoonstelling bij Nest in Den Haag met Wim T. Schippers en Daniel van Straalen.
