De Kunstweek (Week for Arts)

The aims and objectives of "De Kunstweek" (Week for Arts) are:

  • to collectively promote art in general and to enhance the reputation and appreciation of Dutch artists and their works of art and designs in particular;
  • to stimulate looking at, buying, renting/leasing and collecting art through stimulating visits to art galeries, museums and fairs;
  • to provide insight and understanding of how and to what extent Dutch artists have been appreciated throughout times;
  • to support organisations that develop and deploy activities in the arts sector and that initiate discussions and publications on creative arts.
  • An active and versatile (art promotion) policy underpins how these aims and objectives are realized.

In 2011 the Kunstweek is taking place from Saturday 5 November to Sunday 13 November.

Artist of the Year

The title Artist of the Year is traditionally awarded by an extended panel of experts and artlovers. In 2010 their choice fell on Sam Drukker, ‘a versatile artist who has the ability to portray people in all their vulnerability and all their strength with sheer brilliance. He does this not only by using a variety of techniques on a range of materials, such as wood and canvas (when the basic colours of the materials underline the vulnerability and strength of the subject) but also through his choice of subject matter and method, and-most importantly-by constantly renewing himself. This last attribute is rare among successful artists.
