GOPEA - Gallery of Pre-Established Art
May 27 - June 18, 2016
55 pictures from 13 German art universities - the art space hase29 presents pictures of promising university graduates, compiled by the GOPEA initiative.
The young collection owes its creation to a novel idea to promote young art. Two art lovers, unfamiliar with the subject, but full of enthusiasm, want to track down artists at the beginning of their artistic careers and make their works accessible to the public and collectors. Jürgen Schomakers and Rainer Robben founded the GOPEA - gallery of pre-established-art initiative based in Nordhorn. In its diversity, the collection presents a cross-section of current painting and graphics in Germany. Two institutions that are committed to promoting young art, the Society for Contemporary Art Osnabrück eV and the Gopea Initiative, met in their founding phase. The new concept, which is intended to pave the way for young artists to enter the art world, will be the subject of an event within the framework of the exhibition.
