(Past) NL Pop-up London
2010-12-16 until 2011-01-30

NL The Dutch Cultural Pop-up space in London
Ansuya Blom, Martin Effert, Risk Hazekamp, Renie Spoelstra, Willem Weismann, Bas Zoontjens .

‘You Are Here’ is an exhibition of Dutch contemporary visual art at the intersection –one might even say coordinates given the context- of two agendas.

On one hand the show is drawn from artists who have (previously) been nominated for the Sovereign European Art Prize, underscoring NL’s collaboration with the Sovereign Art Foundation.

However, rather than being a simple review or listing, the second agenda has been to draw on specific work from the eclectic group of nominees in order to elaborate a cohesive curatorial thematic. In this case it is one that fits aptly with the mission of NL – The Dutch Cultural Pop-Up Space in London.
