Vishal Kustprijs, exhibition views, 2020




I feel very happy and honoured to have been awarded the Vishal Kunstprijs 2020. 

The Vishal Kunstprijs is attributed every two years to artists in different age categories. This fifth edition was dedicated to artists up to 40. The jury (Lucette ter Borg, Gijs Frieling and Esther Jiskoot) selected three finalists (Ian de Ruiter, Rutger van der Tas and myself) who are now participating in a group show at the Vishal.

The award consists of a pecuniary prize as well as a solo-exhibition at the Vishal, to be presented at the end for next year.

More information about the award, the nominee's show, and the jury rapport can be found here.



Due to the health situation, De Vishal Kunstprijs ceremony will take place with a restricted audience on Friday November 20 at 4PM. The instagram account of the Vishal organizes a lifestream to follow the event online. Stay tuned: @vishalhaarlem.







Happy to announce my nomination for the Vishal Kunstprijs 2020!
