MOAM X De Hortus
The collaboration between MOAM and Amsterdam’s Hortus Botanicus promises to relieve yet another creative itch for young and upcoming artists. As MOAM’s platform promises, they provide recently-graduated students with opportunities to further develop their portfolios in collaboration with big companies. This time, MOAM has selected fifteen young talents to exercise their creative abilities to produce works in the scope of ‘brilliant plants’. These artists have been individually selected and form a multidisciplinary pool of creativity, including not only sculptors and painters, but also fashion designers, digital artists, and film makers.
From the 15th of October to the 15 of November, audiences are welcome to view the works from the most talented young creatives at the most beautiful botanical gardens of the Netherlands, curated and developed for over four hundred years.
In addition to the exhibition, there will be a peripheral program wherein the artwork of the artists will be elaborated on. Through workshops, panel discussions and guided tours, visitors will have the opportunity to experience Hortus Botanicus in a whole different manner. Also, all the activities will have an educational angle with a focus on the artists and their work, nature and sustainability.
