With opening speeches by the Gemeentemuseum director Benno Tempel, Carlien Oudes of foundation ArtWorlds and Jan Jaap Knol director of the Cultural Participation Fund, has this Saturday the first edition of the ZomerExpo been opened. Surely the first in a long tradition to come. Jan Jaap Knol already let the audience know that in any case the fund guarantees the financing for the next three years. All three speakers spoke emphatically their gratitude to the participating artists. Certainly not something to take for granted at major cultural events such as these that the organizing parties explicitly mention and praise the artists. Emphasizing the important cultural role of the artist, a welcome sound in a political culture-unfriendly climate. Although the curators only had a loosely on the genres of still life, portrait and landscape based starting point of 250 different artworks, has there nevertheless a pleasant whole been composed. Along with plenty of room and attention for each individual participant. The event was broadcasted live by Avro’s KunstUur.

The ZomerExpo at The Hague’s Gemeentemuseum runs until the 21st of August 2011.
