ARTIST FIRST Paper Only: The Exhibition in Amsterdam

ARTIST FIRST Paper Only: The Exhibition in Amsterdam

Artist First, Paper Only is an exhibition at Boeske Projects in Amsterdam. This group exhibition, including drawings, installations and special contributions, opened yesterday and can be seen through the 4th of November 2017.

Recapping it all a tiny nutshell
Like the title says; Artist First is created (read all about that on the site) to make the artist important again (as opposed to the modern-day importancy of curators, trends, status, money etc.) and to show the “expressive power of the individual artwork—and with it, the artist’s autonomous position” (quote via Edo Dijksterhuis at artslant.com)

We, at Mimi Berlin think The Artist First, Paper Only is an exhibition which is certainly worth your visit!

Mimi Berlin Blogger Team visited the opening and took some Party-Snaps. See those HERE
