The foundations of the Kunsthuis (established in 1999) are embedded in music and art. The Kunsthuis encompasses musical study seminars (flute, piano, key board, solfège), a gallery, an atelier and a substantial art collection.
The Kunsthuis believes that communication between artist and public is, especially in the beginning phase, of imperative importance. What matters is that young, talented artists are given the opportunity to connect to a circle of people who share the same zeal and love for art. This connection can then, gradually, introduce them a network in which they can expose their in order for them to become established in the art-loving community. This encourages the active involvement of and interest in art and, eventually, can lead to a certain form of independence for the young artist.
However, the interest in art (in the traditional display set-up like museums and/ or exhibition galleries) is unfortunately, diminishing. A possible explanation for this is the need for multi-active enriching experiences that young people tend to seek. This calls for an arranged, almost ‘tailor-made’ setting in which art can be exposed to and capture the interest of young people. The Maastricht Graduate School of Governance is, therefore, a perfect place: a place where young talent can meet and enjoy each other, a place where science and art can connect.
Kunsthuis Maastricht hopes to find similar initiatives among other institutes to ‘connect’ and display in this way, outside the traditional art gallery format.
The exhibition:’ introduction’ is partly in ownership by the Kunsthuis and partly consigned and displayed by the participating artists.
The exhibition ‘introduction’ runs from November 30- December 18 and will be open for visitors during working days between 11-16 at Kapoenstraat 2, Maastricht.
