PZI's MA Fine Art in 'Kunstvlaai'

PZI's MA Fine Art in 'Kunstvlaai'

ArtPie International is an art fair for new flavours in art. It is organized in Amsterdam annually. This year's edition presents 75 independent art spaces, 15 MFA schools and 400 individual artists.

At ArtPie International 2008, participants of the MA courses of WdKA's Piet Zwart Institute will present themselves. Each day, one or two different artists from the PZI present their work in a series of individual statements. The presentations reflect the diversity of the PZI: included are video, photography, performance, drawing and sculpture. Whether new work is presented for the first time, or existing work is shown in a new context, all participating artists engage critically with issues relevant to contemporary culture and society, placing their work at the center of a larger context of public discourse and display.

Participating artists:
Inger Alfnes (N), Maja Bekan (SC G), Rachel Carey (USA), Cornelia Heusser (CH), Aline Keller (CH), Anke Kuipers (NL), Gerwin Luijendijk (NL), Margo Onnes (NL), Esperanza Rosales (USA), David Stamp (UK), Edward Thomson (UK), Esmé Valk (NL), Esther de Vlam (NL) and Sjoerd Westbroek (NL).
