Traditionally, on 30 April you can sell your old furniture and toys in practically every town throughout the Netherlands. The national Queen’s Day means that the streets are ‘common property’ for one day.
This year, the Bonnefantenmuseum in Maastricht has decided to do something different with the traditional flea market. In the light of the current exhibition Exile on Main Street, which focuses on American artists working beyond commercial lines, it has set up a ‘creative flea market’ in which non-commercial artists can exhibit and sell their work. Fashion designers, cartoonists, graphic designers, architects, musicians, street artists and other artists can use two square metres of the museum to show their creations and hopefully sell them to interested visitors. The only condition is that the price of each artwork offered cannot exceed €300.
As “non-commercial artists often encounter disadvantages compared to artists operating commercially”, the Bonnefantenmuseum is organising this evening.
If you feel inclined to participate, you can sign up via www.bonnefanten.nl
, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
for more information. But be quick, as the number of participants is restricted to 120.
