PARKers at Frontenpark Maastricht

Lukas Kramer
From 31st of August until 8th of September you can (re)discover Frontenpark thanks to PARKers exhibition.

It is located so close to the historic city of Maastricht, however for many people including me a forgotten and unknown territory with a diverse scenery, cultural-historical, and nature. A lush ‘wild’ nature with traces of the industrial past and the remains of seventeenth-century fortifications.
In the near future, this area will be developed as the Frontenpark: a new city park on the north side of the city centre.
In the last forty years this place was quite neglected and forgotten and now it is in the starting point of transition to become a new urban landscape.
This is so exciting, it feels like Maastricht is growing up, literally growing.

Since this summer an extensive program of activities has started to take place in the Frontenpark. My first encounter with the Frontenpark happend last weekend at the opening of PARKers, curated by the Bart van den Boom and Ilona van den Brekel.
This is such a wonderful opportunity to get to know this new place and get inspired by nine temporary art installations.

PARKers presents nine temporary artworks/installations in public space by these artists: Jeroen van Bergen, Charbel-Joseph H. Boutros, Jens Brouwers, Stefan Cools, Paul Devens, Lucas Kramer, La Bolleur, Han Rameckers and Oscar Santillan.

PARKers is initiated by Huis voor de Kunsten Limburg, in collaboration with Bureau Europa and Van Eyck Academy.
