Information about Kunstpodium T
Kunstpodium T is an independent laboratory and platform for art students and contemporary artists. Furthermore, Kunstpodium T facilitates the development of the artists’ identity and cultural entrepreneurship for a new generation of artists. How do you create a bridge linking students graduating from art school to the professional field? How do you build a network as a young artist? Encounters, cooperation, networking and visibility for a new generation of artists are the points of focus of the Apprentice Master project.
Apprentice Master aims to create a space of inspiration and collaboration between young artists in their graduation year and more experienced contemporary artists. The project offers an intensive exchange with an infrastructure between artists, art schools, exhibition spaces and the field of activity. This creates an ever growing international network, for emerging artists; a trusted but exciting place for the freshly graduated, to help them position themselves in an expanding art world, and to create, an inspirational base for everyone interested in the arts.
After eight successful editions in The Netherlands and Belgium, the Dutch Leerling Meester project is collaborating with more European academies. In 2016/2017 Kunstpodium T will organize the third International edition of the Apprentice/Master project. During the Apprentice Master project talented young artists in their final year of university, from different art schools internationally, are linked with a renowned contemporary artist: the Master Artist. Each time four students from different art academies exhibit with each other and a contemporary artist. The coming season will result in a series of 20 exhibitions. During the project, groups of four students from different schools from all over Europe will work together and exhibit along with their Master Artist.
