Groninger Museum and NP3 announce the final selection of YGA II

Out of the forty submissions a first selection of seven artists is made: Rob Bouwman, Esther de Graaf, Pascal van der Graaf, Lambert Kamps, Adri Schokker, Berndnaut Smilde and Lena van der Wal.
The curators made a deliberate choice based on documentation, motivation, a individual talk and the extent to which they can contribute to the development of the seven artists.

The three YGA II artists are announced on Wednesday April 10:

Esther de Graaf 

Adri Schokker 

Berndnaut Smilde 

The three YGA II artists: Esther de Graaf, Adri Schokker and Berndnaut Smilde

Jong Jury Prijs YGA II selection

Prior to the announcement of the final selection, the Jong Jury Prijs YGA II is handed out. More than 150 scholars from the Wessel Gansfortcollege followed the steps as curators. Based on the handed documentation they picked their three favorite artists, which according to them, deserve the YGA II trajectory.

The students have chosen their three favorite artists:

Adri Schokker 
Berndnaut Smilde 
Lena van der Wal
