Locatie Rode Zaal, Brakke Grond, Nes 45, Amsterdam

Een jonge of studerende kunstenaar wordt als opkomend of als een ontdekking naar voren geschoven. Maar waar lopen zij tegenaan, hoe selecteert de curator en wat zit er voor de kunstenaar in? Curatoren delen hun aanpak en deelnemende kunstenaars hun ervaring naar aanleiding van de expositie Marres Currents #3: Sightseeing. Een discussie waar het symbool van de jeugd wordt afgezet tegen het maken van naam in de kunstwereld.
