Season Highlights: Apprentice Master summer exhibition
27 June @ 8:00 pm - 1 September @ 5:00 pm
In the exhibition ‘Season Highlights’, four apprentices of the tenth Apprentice/Master season have been invited to make a small solo exhibition in Kunstpodium T. These presentations will be on show during the summer. During the opening of the last Apprentice Master exhibition on Thursday 23 May, the nominees will be announced.
The exhibition opens on Thursday 27 June, during which an independent jury will announce one of the nominees as the winner of the Jan Naaijkens prize. After its opening, the exhibition is on show from 27 June until 1 September 2018. The exhibition is open on Friday, Saturdays and Sundays from 13.00 to 17.00, by appointment and during the market Dwalerij.
Since 1982, the Jan Naaijkens prize is awarded yearly by the Noordbrabants Genootschap. This prize is awarded to somebody that has paid a special contribution to the development of the cultural field in the Dutch province of North-Brabant. The first prize was awarded to Jan Naaijkens, after that it went to Gerard van Maasakkers (1987), Tom America (2005), Ed Schilders (2008), Jacques de Groot (2010) and Maarten Jense (2011).
Since 2014 the Noordbrabants Genootschap connects the prize to the Apprentice Master project from Kunstpodium T. The Jan Naaijkens prize is since then awarded to the development of talent; the award has been awarded to Juan Pablo Plazas in 2014, to Rudolf Samhejl in 2015, to Ans Mertens in 2016, to Nuni Weisz in 2017 and Yoel Pytowski in 2018.
