In4Art is building a relevant 21st century art collection.
The main focus are the visions and perspectives from artists on our fast changing society marked by the exponential growth of technological possibilities. We are interested in how the artists translate this into the work they make. In4Art gathers insight from artists on innovation and trend developments.
The In4Art Collection is divided in three pillars, showing the interpretation of future development and leading towards agents of change:
- innovative and inspiring concepts: cutting edge techniques, concepts and expressions;
- material research: stretching the edges of a medium, taking the courage to experiment;
- renewed relevance: art of tomorrow, through the eyes of history: unites traditional art with its understanding and translations of the challenges for the 21st century.
The In4rt Collection is an Open Collection that is spread over the locations of In4Art members and that is actively put on display during exhibitions throughout Europe. The result is that all works in the collection are always on display: in a home, in an office, during a Salon, in our Amsterdam Project Space or at an exhibitions at an art institute. Next to that, the story behind the works are told .
We make a distinction in the career phase of the artist, based on our building blocks model.
Artists that started to get international attention and are included in museum shows/ collections and are represented by internationally operating galleries. These artists are supported by our angel investments.
Artists that started to get national attention, got nominated for some prizes, added residencies or post education to the curriculum and work (occasionally) with a national gallery or shown work in local museums. These artists are stimulated and supported through our patronage innovation projects like spotlights.
Included in the collection are: Bram Braam, Daan Botlek, Inez de Brauw, Konrad Wyrebek, Ignacio Garcia Sanchez, Jaakko Pallasvuo, Gustavo Diaz Sosa, Lennart Lahuis, Niek Hendrix, Sybren Renema, Tanja Ritterbex, Yelena Popova, Vasilis Avramidis, Vermibus, Willem Besselink, Wouter van der Laan
Artists that recently graduated or are taking the first steps in their professional career; making the first steps into the artworld. These artists are the stARTups part of the incubation program and get intense support through coaching, career development masterclasses and networking.
