During Dutch Design Week (17-25 October 2015), Creative Industries Fund NL is organising the exhibition In No Particular Order for the second time. This presentation will be showcasing work by 38 up-and-coming designers from various disciplines, ranging from fashion, product and graphic design and architecture to e-culture. In 2014/2015 these designers were awarded a year-long grant by the Fund in order to take their careers a step further.
The Fund has once again asked Agata Jaworska to serve as the exhibition’s curator. Her presentation uses 38 different perspectives and projects to provide insight into a new generation of designers. Besides showcasing their work, this year Jaworska uncovers underlying mechanisms and structures as well. “I want to map out how the designers go about their work, the worlds or networks in which they operate, and who inspires them,” Jaworska says. “Visitors will be able to rove through a landscape of relational networks, in which a number of journeys through content are possible.”
The exhibition presents work by Alicia Ongay-Perez, Amber Veel, Anne Dessing, Arnout Meijer, Barbara Langendijk, Bennie Meek, Bora Hong, Britta Tan, Christa van der Meer, Donna Verheijden, Femke Herregraven, Gijs de Heij, Henriette Waal, Henrik van Leeuwen, Hozan Zangana, Anton Lamberg, Jelle Mastenbroek, Jesse Howard, Jon Stam, Jonas Lund, Joris Strijbos, Maison the Faux, Jurjen Versteeg, Marjan van Aubel, Mark Sturkenboom, Matthijs Munnik, Maurizio Montalti, Nicky Assmann, Noon Sanpatchayapong, Ricky Rijkenberg, Ricky van Broekhoven, Rogier Arents, Sander Wassink, Sjoerd ter Borg, Thomas Vailly, Tuomas Markunpoika, Viktor Hachmang, and Yuri Veerman.
Grant Programme for Talent Development
Talent development is one of the Fund’s five spearheads. Every year about 30 highly promising designers are selected to receive a year-long grant. This can be used for anything associated with new work, such as research, materials, equipment or projects in the Netherlands and beyond. In addition the Fund offers a support programme to improve the tie-in with professional practice. For groups and individuals there is guidance and support with the development of entrepreneurship and professionalism.
