Minimum Distance Art Market
13. August 2020 to 23. August 2020
"I welcome whatever happens next" - since 2019, the quote by John Cage has been carved into the frieze of the Nassauischer Kunstverein Wiesbaden. Certainly, the composer and artist did not have the global corona pandemic in mind when he uttered these words. And yet the crisis has serious consequences for Wiesbaden's cultural scene. The Nassauischer Kunstverein would therefore like to support artists from Wiesbaden and welcome them to its premises in the spirit of John Cage.
Special times require special initiatives:
From August 13 to 23, 2020 the Nassauischer Kunstverein will host the Minimum Distance Art Market, where Wiesbaden artists will have the opportunity to present and sell their work. The grid of the minimum distance is marked on the floor, each field becomes a market stand - free of charge for professional artists from Wiesbaden. 100% of the proceeds from the sale go to the authors of the works.
You can apply to a marketplace until July 20, 2020. The following documents are required to provide professional support for the project:
/ curriculum vitae and artistic career with list of exhibitions
/ A short letter about your own relationship to Wiesbaden
/ 5 Images of planned exhibition works and their dimensions
/ Desired assembly date
