Young Art Night #7


Night for for young artists & music lovers.

Bonsoir madames et monsieurs et bienvenue à notre musée! On Saturday October 3rd, the seventh edition of the Young Art Night will take place. The theme? ‘Le Freak – C’est Chique’. When the museum closes for the night, the animals come out to play… During this night, the museum transforms into a melting pot of the unexpected. From beginning to end, nothing is what it seems – even an innocent stop at the toilets could get wild! Release your inner beauty or beast in the museum during this night where fresh young artists present their work, bands and DJ’s envoke the beat freak within you and contemporary French culture from our exhibition The Republic of Art meets contemporary Eindhoven culture.

Young artists from diverse disciplines fill the museum. Jennifer Smith and Klaas Jonkman show us paintings on canvas and paper. Photography forms the core of the practice of Beril Gür; Martha Kamminga combines photographic series with installation art. Teresa Mendler and Marlies Kolodziey present us with beautiful design objects in order to make our daily tasks a bit more brighter.

On this freakalicious night, it won’t do good to stand still for too long – move those feet! As always, we will surprise you with exceptionally good music. Eindhoven based music mayhem makers BlackWax will make you move your body in a way you never thought you could move! Plus: what happens when you throw together a bunch of wild cards with humor, good ideas and an even better taste in music? Well yes – the! The gentlemen will close the evening in spectaculair fashion. 

From October 1st through 4, Eindhoven forms the stage for The Big Draw. Also during the Young Art Night you can count on a night relaxing doodling. The Eindhoven based artist Gam Bodenhausen will join us for a workshop open to everyone – master drawer or not. 

But there is more, much much more… KloosterKino presents fresh animation – an hour filled with the best animation around. Performances by DJ80, an unique combination of art, music and of course: lots and lots of 80’s love. And don’t forget to listen, because at the most unexpected moments soft, sweet and subtle poetry might just catch your ears. 

All your senses will be tickled during this edition of the Young Art Night. This night will be All Inclusive: the deaf and hard of hearing, the blind and visually impaired are more than welcome. Especially aimed at them, but also applicable for others, there are tours during the night that will focus on touching and that will sharpen your senses. In addition, there will be sign language interpreters joining in on several activities and the music programme will be accompanied by music interpreters. This is part of the Special Guests programme.
