The festival consists of three parts, which you can attend online. Take part in a master class, ask your questions to art experts during the panel or take a digital look into the studios of Utrecht artists. The masterclass and panel will take place via Zoom, so make sure to write down the links in your calender!
MASTERCLASS: LOOKING FORWARD
In this masterclass, we delve deeper into five artworks that have a link to the city, which - e.g. through their themes, use of materials or location - look forward to the future. On the basis of five artworks, we will look at five trends that we can discern in the art world, and in which the artist's vision on a certain subject is apparent. We will look at the digital domain, sustainability, the relationship between man and nature and inequality in society. All works are part of Utrecht's collections, can be seen in the city's public space or have been created by HKU alumni.
Participate from 11.00 - 11.45h via this link.
PANEL: SHAPING THE FUTURE
In the closing edition of the Young Collectors Festival Utrecht we look ahead in an online panel. We invited an artist, gallerist and collector to share their vision of the future. Of course you, the collectors of the future, are also welcome to ask the experts questions and share your insights. What does the future of art look like? Which art forms will take off and what consequences will that have for the preservation of your collection? What influence does the rapid digitalisation have on the art market and what does this mean for the role of the art fair? We will discuss these pressing questions with artists, curators and gallery owners. After this discussion, we explicitly invite the audience to join the conversation and exchange views with each other and the guests. Speakers include Elisah van den Bergh (curator NN Group Collection), Frederique Jonker (artist) and Oscar Larik (gallery owner).
Attend from 13.00 - 14.30h via this link.
