Make Art Move
Because we know art fanatics love to party, Melkweg is organizing the very first edition of ARTY PARTY. One night only on August 4, graduates take over Melkweg and present their work in an extraordinary way. Discover the future of art in every corner of Melkweg whilst having a drink, chatting with your friends and dancing the night away. ARTY PARTY provides tunes, talks and art presentations to fulfil the need of every creative soul. After all, that’s what ARTY PARTY is all about: Art = Party! Our great friends within the art world have selected their favorite art works from this year’s graduates from all over the country. We proudly present them to you!
Subbacultcha presents MICH, young talent Délage and The Togetherness and DJ Felix & Alan. Northern German singer-songwriter Délage caught us off guard with his true blue sounds from a heavy heart. DJ Felix & Alan of the Rietveld Academy bright up the dancefloor with their African beats, disco, wave and dub. Whatever makes you dance!

ARTY PARTY presents talks for every art professional. Young Collectors Circle will talk about the do’s and don’ts for young artists and art collectors. Voordekunst will learn you how to crowdfund and Mondriaan Fund explains everything about The Stipendium for Emerging Artists. DutchCulture | TransArtists gives you all the artist in residence opportunities and artist Jan Hoek leads the discussion about the big black hole after graduation. Creators, the art and culture platform of VICE, went to graduation exhibitions to interview artists and ask questions like: will the artwork end up in your parents attic and when did you neglect your work? Toon Heesakkers, chief editor Creators, does it again on ARTY PARTY.
