5 - 20 februari 2009: RAiR #1, Rotterdam Artists In Residence
RAiR #1 brings together the work of twenty-one visual artists who were artists in residence in Rotterdam between 2003 and 2009.
The exhibition’s theme is how the visiting artist relates to the new environment. The exhibited artists’ working practices show two approaches. Some artists display an introvert approach, having used their residency as an opportunity to absorb themselves in their work in the studio. Others show a more extrovert approach, having sought interaction with their surroundings and produced work that responds to the social and cultural context
The exhibition demonstrates the high quality of the work made by these artists and shows that Rotterdam’s fifteen guest studios form an indispensable link between the Dutch and international art worlds.
