During Art Rotterdam 2021, from 1 - 4 July, the Mondriaan Fund will be presenting the exhibition ‘Prospects-Mondriaan Fund shows talent’ for the ninth time. At the Van Nelle Factory, guest curator Johan Gustavsson is putting together an exhibition featuring the work of 75 visual artists who received a subsidy in 2019 to launch their professional careers.

This year’s exhibition is spread over two locations on the grounds of the Van Nelle Factory. The works of art can not only be seen in the former Distribution Centre, but also in one of the opposite Schiehallen buildings and on the grounds outside. Clear routing has been implemented in both halls, so that visitors can walk around safely and see all of the works of art. It promises to be a fantastic exhibition, ranging from photography to film, paintings to installations and tapestries to objects.

Just like in 2020, Johan Gustavsson will be the guest curator for the exhibition. Gustavsson is co-director of 1646, The Hague, as well as a board member of The Naked and Page Not Found and teacher at the Royal Academy of Art (KABK) in The Hague. His experiences from the previous edition will be used to put together yet another strong exhibition.

The Mondriaan Fund organises the Prospects exhibition annually to boost the visibility of beginning visual artists. The exhibition is also an excellent opportunity to show what has been achieved thanks in part to a contribution from the Mondriaan Fund, a public stimulation fund for visual art and cultural heritage in the Netherlands.
