Marres Currents #3: sightseeing
De Griend 2 Maastricht.
Marres Currents #3 is the third edition of the annual exhibition series titled Marres Currents. With this series, Marres presents recent graduates from art academies in the Southern Netherlands, Belgium and Germany. While offering emerging artists and curators a platform, Marres also aims to build an international infrastructure for talent development.
Agata Jaworska is invited as guest curator for this year.
Jaworska teaches at the Sandberg Instituut, the Design Academy Eindhoven and the ArtEZ Institute of the arts. As a curator she created several exhibitions. Her outstanding exhibition In No Particular Order during the Dutch Design Week last year showed work of young designers. For Marres Currents #3, Jaworska gathered a team of curators around her. Ina Hollmann, Eva Jäger en Guillemette Legrand, (former) students of the Design Academy Eindhoven.
"We are interested in the way young artists position themselves in society and in their ideas about what an art practice can be", says Jaworska. "Marres Currents offers artists the opportunity to think about emerging trends in the region and in broader discussions with artists, teachers, collectors, curators and the public".
