YGA II is the one-year development program for young talented artists of Groningen and is a collaboration of NP3 and the Groninger Museum.

The Young Grunn Artist II trajectory is an extension to the current work practice of the artist. In addition NP3 and the Groninger Museum offer over the course of one year all the necessary support on content, business and promotion to professionalize. They will provide the YGA artists tools to obtain the personal artistic aims and the opportunity to gain the necessary connection to the (inter)national art world.

Next to individual coaching, the artists will receive a personal work and development budget which gives them the possibility to create new work or hire expertise; to network with art professionals, take part in a short international exchange program, or make a short working trip to an artistic and cultural metropolis.

At the end of YGA II trajectory, May 2014, the curators of NP3 and Groninger Museum decide which artist convinced the most and gets the opportunity to an exhibition at the Groninger Museum.

From over 40 submissions three artists were selected for the YGA II trajectory:
Esther de Graaf, Berndnaut Smilde and Adri Schokker.

bur0 Gr0ningen

official opening bur0 Gr0ningen on Friday February 14
Hofstraat 21 Groningen

bur0 Gr0ningen is a new evolving and fluid concept. The transformations and interactions consists of adding and/or removing works of various artists, disciplines, duration and models. Each change is defined by a code, starting with bG001.

bG001: Martijn Schuppers

bG displays a wide range in diversity of the work of Martijn Schuppers, like the colourful, organic digital images and the subtile relief paintings in a 24/7 ultraviolet illuminated environment. The large format paintings as well as the manipulated prints originate from pure painterly methods. The techniques he uses are the basis of every image that arises in the perception of the viewer.

February 14 from 17 – 19 hrs
Diana Wind, director of Stedelijk Museum Schiedam, presents the new publication ‘SURFACE and INCIDENT’ of Martijn Schuppers.
