PRESS RELEASE KUNSTRAI 2019
From Wednesday the 17th of april until Monday 22nd of april KunstRAI will celebrate its 35th edition! During the fair, over eighty galleries will show their contemporary, autonomous art. Paintings, sculptures, photography, new media, design and jewelry will all be there.
Every year, KunstRAI invites a foreign area or city to present their art and culture on the fair. This year, six galleries from Catalonia will bring their collection to the ‘Focus Catalunya’ square. These galleries are: Galería Contrast, N2 Galería, 3 punts galerie, Victor Lope Arte Contemporaneo, Anquins en Pigment Gallery. In addition to their booth, the galleries will each bring a large, surprising sculpture to fill the square
In addition to a regular booth, in which a gallery presents multiple artist, so-called solo booths will be at KunstRAI 2019. The work of just one artist will be completely made visible.
RAW Edge Booths
Just like every year, starting galleries will get the opportunity to present them selves in a ‘RAW edge’. These young galleries, selected on their daring and new approaches, will show their artist and presentations.
Een Kapiteins Gewaad
Stephanie Schuitemaker – from Gallery SCHUIT – and designer Johanner Offerhous will bring the backstage program ‘Een Kapiteins Gewaad’. A selection wearable works of art of young artist, interwoven with the textile from the walls. It is an exposition that connects art to fashion. The wall-high pieces of textile, hanging from the walls, make the exposition a true experience.
WOW is a creative Amsterdam platform. Young, freshly graduated artist live and work here. The cross-overs between all kinds of art that the create and preform, will be shown at the second backstage program of the KunstRAI.
