The graduating class of the ArtScience Interfaculty will present a preview of their final artworks in a multi-day exhibition tracing a route through the city center of the Hague. This year’s exhibition is a full-on cultural happening, including an opening concert, symposium, and featuring the work of the largest graduating class to ever come out of the ArtScience Interfaculty: twenty-three international and local artists (bachelor and master students).

The event will begin with an opening concert the evening of May 16 at the Korzo Theater. The concert, entitled “Beeld en Geluid”, will celebrate the creative culture of the ArtScience Interfaculty through an eclectic program of live cinema and performances by alumni. After the concert there will be drinks and DJs, and beforehand the audience will have the opportunity to get a sneak peek at the artworks on exhibit at Korzo.

The full exhibition will open the following day (May 17-18), taking place at three satellite locations clustered around a central information point at the Grote Markt. Saturday morning, May 18th, will feature a symposium entitled “Hybrid Forms” at Korzo Theater with talks and discussions on the core topics of this year’s theme. Speakers include post-conceptual neuroaesthetician Warren Neidich and Joe Davis, the inimitable “mad scientist” of MIT.

The four locations of interest include: GEMAK (central building of the Vrije Academie), HOOP (catacombs beneath the old city hall), Korzo Theater, and public interventions at the main information point on the Grote Markt square.
