The major international Children's Biennale 2024, full of colorful works of art from the Netherlands to Singapore, starts again on Saturday, March 9!
A Better place
The popular Children’s Biennale invites kids and adults to get hands-on with art. Expect room-filling installations you can react to or help to build. Artists from the Netherlands and abroad, including Florentijn Hofman, Hedy Tjin and Wang Ruobing, will present work that will get visitors thinking about a better world. This time round the museum is again working with young ambassadors. Follow their activities at @groningermuseumyoung and #kinderbiennalegm
Every artwork in the Children’s Biennale will invite interaction, participation and creation. Through doing, discovering, making and looking, visitors will actively engage with art in a variety of ways.
The Dutch artists who will present their works are Carolien Adriaansche, Sanne Boekel, Florentijn Hofman, Jelle Mastenbroek, Florien Riezebos, Hedy Tjin, Studio Toer and Stefan Venbroek. Installations by Isabel and Alfredo Aquilizan from the Philippines and Wang Ruobing from Singapore can also be admired in the museum.
From start to finish
In the run-up to the exhibition, the children help to write information signs for the artworks, plan the marketing, and select merchandise for the museum shop. They will witness the technical construction of the exhibition, help to determine its layout, and learn how to be a tour guide. Perhaps best of all, they visit participating artists’ studios and, where possible, help them to produce works for the show.
