A Wild Summer of Art

Iratxe Jaio and Klaas van Gorkum are presenting their installation False Flag in Brutus, the largest contemporary art exhibition and performance space in the Netherlands. Their work will be on display from 1 July to 31 July 2022, as part of the Wild Summer of Art, an enormous exhibition with selected young talent and established names with new work by a total of 180 artists.

The Dutch variant of the annual Royal Academy Summer Exhibition
Wild Summer of Art offers an overview of the current state of affairs. Visitors can purchase the exhibited works directly from the artist. Depending on the results, Wild Summer of Art will become a recurring annual event similar to the Summer Exhibition at London's Royal Academy.

BRUTUS, the location of Wild Summer of Art is unique in its raw appearance. In this Artist Driven Playground, participants can go as big as they want. The composition of Wild Summer of Art is in the hands of a curatorial team led by Piet de Jonge (former curator of the Van Abbemuseum, Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen and Museum Kröller-Müller), Jessy Koeiman (curator Collective Learning, Art Institute Melly) and Liesbeth Bik (visual artist and curator). The curators were advised by twelve professional scouts, who suggested artists, which resulted in a broadly composed whole.

Opening Wild Summer of Art Friday 1 July
A major exhibition naturally requires a grand opening. A party where you can toast, talk and dance. After a word from the new Brutus director Sanne ten Brink and the curatorial team, artist Sachia Pereira-Stolle leads the audience through the spaces of Brutus with his Blood Bear Parade. This procession eventually turns into a wonderful opening ritual. After that, the exhibition is officially open to the public. Music is provided by Move Around Sound.
