Initiator and producer

The Marres Currents annual exhibition series provides a platform for recently graduated artists from a series of academies in Belgium, Germany and the southern Netherlands. Marres Currents offers young artists a training ground as well as a presentation platform. Marres and the curators coach the artists in exhibition design and the development of any new works, but also in presenting their work in a verbal presentation during the two-day opening program of the exhibition. While offering emerging artists a platform outside the educational context, Marres Currents also aims to build an international infrastructure for art academies and institutions. As part of the series, Marres organizes public talks by curators, critics, foundations and art groups.

Marres Currents is a collaborative project with a series of academies in Belgium, the Netherlands and Nord-Rhein Westfalen (DE). Funding is derived partly from contributing academies. In the third edition, Marres Currents was organized in an old garage in Maastricht. It travelled from there to the Brakke Grond in Amsterdam (20 February – 1 April 2016).
