An Inspirational Project

The art project is established with an idea to encourage young artists to enter the art market and to introduce art lovers, prospective buyers and innovative art collectors to new rising talents. This will allow the emerging artists to find their ways into the professional art gallery. Yet, the art event in June will be only the first one of its kind. It will be a part of the project conceived as a series of different art exhibitions, which will take place on several dates during the year, always featuring new artists and artworks. Each of these events will introduce artists selected by the gallery team and a guest curator to participate in a group exhibition taking place at the end of the year, accompanied by all the other nominated artists of the past ARTLAB events. One of the artists featured at this annual exhibition will have an opportunity to get an official exhibition at the Gallery Benjamin Eck.
