We are building an Open Collection of Innovative Art
works: 150+ artists: 40+ locations: 15+
The collection is a source of inspiration and shared within our network club and, therefore, always visible.
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 artist translates this into the work they make.
The In4Art Collection shows how art can be a driver for innovation. It is focused on the domains Next Generation Internet and Materials for a Sustainable Future. The artworks in the collection show interpretations of future development and reflections on the current state. This results in works that addresses:
- concepts & technology: 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 showing how art is an announcer of new developments giving understanding and translating challenges for the 21st century.
The collection is a result of commissions, co-production budgets and direct purchases.
We want the artworks from the collection to been seen as much as possible. Therefore, we have an active policy to create visibility and show the works and their stories. The In4Art 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 exhibitions. Next to that, the story behind the works are told during keynotes.
Works from the In4Art Collection have been shown at art institutions, as:
