Preview expo Fine Arts: N0kia's tag line

56 students of the full-time Bachelor Fine Arts programme (Painting-Printmaking, Sculpture, Autonoom) and the part-time programme, come together in a preview exhibition, titled N0kia's Tag Line, before their final graduation in the summer of 2018. The exhibition opens on Friday 8 December at 18:00 at the fantastic location of MOOOF Den Haag.

Curator: Samiha Awad 
Godmother: Heske ten Cate

N0kia's Tag Line

Students say about their exhibition: 'This exhibition stands for connectivity – between us as students, and further between visitors and the work. We aim to create a bigger network of exchange. It is easy to forget about one another, even when you live/work close to each other. An important interaction could be lost. We believe in the importance of contact in a society, no matter of the scale (a country, a city or an academy). In this exhibition the art-lover, the baker, the critic, the foreigner, they are all welcome. Art within culture could make the connection between diverse groups. It's a major part of an artistic practice to create those connections - between concept and material, between an individual and a group, between human and human.'

Side Program

The side program runs along the exhibition, extending the works with a conversation-show. In every show, students will be invited as guests speakers, who, in their own way will give the audience an insight into the work, the artist's practice and future perspectives. For the side program, students use one of the most successful and accessible television formats, the talk show, with a tiny bit of humour with the ultimate goal to make contact with the visitors in a playful way. 


A comprehensive publication, containing visual and textual material about all the artists with an additional contribution by the curators, Samiha Awad and Heske ten Cate, and Fine Arts coordinator Martijn Verhoeven, will be sold at the event. The money raised will be used to produce a catalogue of the show. Your support is crucial! These two publications will later come together as a pair, fitting and completing each other, visually and content-wise!
