Call(s) for graduates

28 Apr – 12 Jul 2020   /   Nest en Melkweg Expo@Public Space

As all art schools are closed for the time being, the degree shows of graduating students are subject to unforeseen changes on a national level: the exhibitions have either been postponed or are presented in intimate settings. In light of this, Nest and Melkweg Expo want to invite all graduating students from the class of 2020 (BA/MA Fine Art) at all the Dutch art schools to submit an image of their graduation work for a city-wide exhibition in the public space of The Hague or Amsterdam.

From July, poster billboards in The Hague and Amsterdam will be dedicated to these graduation works.

How it works:
Are you a graduate student attending a Fine Art course at an art school in The Netherlands?

  • submit your work before June 1st to info@nestruimte.nl with the reference ‘Call(s) for graduates’.
      • submit a max. of 2 high res images of the works you would like to see exhibited.
      • submit a text about your work, max. 200 words.
      • include: name, course, art school, website (optional)

This panel of arts professionals will review all submissions:
Lieneke Hulshof – editor-in-chief Mister Motley
Xander Karskens – director De Ateliers
Iris Kensmil – Visual Artist
Adam Nillissen – director Unfair Amsterdam
Benno Tempel – director Kunstmuseum Den Haag
Heske ten Cate – artistic director Nest Den Haag
Fleurie Kloostra – programmer Visual Arts of Melkweg Expo

This results in a shortlist of 20 submissions representing an impression of the graduations in 2020. Printing and distribution costs will be covered by Nest.

The artists will receive additional exposure in the form of texts written about them and their exhibited work, published by Mister Motley magazine.
