Emerging Artists

16.09.2017 - 12.11.2017

For years, there has been a thriving fine art scene in Dortmund, Germany, including trans-regional exhibitions and exciting creative people. On top of that, the interlinking of the local art scenes stretches beyond city borders and transforms participants of contemporary art into representatives of the new Ruhr Area. The Ruhr Area as a foundation for art is to be made more attractive especially in an international context also to prevent a migration of creatives and artists.

Emerging Artists Dortmund is including contest, an exhibition, portfolio consulting, career plannings and cultural education. After its successful launch in 2015, 2017 is also all about highlighting excellent artists and creative workers from Dortmund to actively integrate them into networks, provide them with the necessary tools for further development and to work professionally as well as successfully. The aim of Emerging Artists is to enable artists and creative workers to achieve the professionality and publicity that is necessary for their future career. It is the first time that one international artist from the Netherlands is involved in the exhibition as well as there had been partners from smARTplaces in the jury and will be consultants for artist’s marketeer via social media.
