MK Award Foundation cordially invites you to the MK Award Fundraiser Show
Parallel to Art Rotterdam 2012, the International Art Fair of The Netherlands, the MK Award Foundation organizes the spectacular MK Award Fundraiser Show. Curated by Tanya Rumpff, a renowned Dutch gallery owner and art consultant, this show will for once unite the majority of artists that until recently have been presented by the former MKgalerie Rotterdam/Berlin. Substantial amounts of the proceeds of the sales at the show will benefit the MK Award Foundation i.e. the MK Award. The MK Award Fundraiser Show is part of Re:Rotterdam, the satellite Art Fair during Art Rotterdam.

MK Award – future prize for visual artists
The MK Award is a new prize for visual art, intended for visual artists that are working consistently to create an idiosyncratic oeuvre, keeping away from any hypes-of-the-day. The MK Award does not discriminate as to gender, age or artistic medium.
The MK Award Foundation pays homage to the creative legacy of Emmo Grofsmid (1951-2011) and Karmin Kartowikromo (1948-2011), owners of the former MKgalerie Rotterdam/Berlin.
MK Edition – courtesy gift to benefactors
As part of its activities to generate funding for the MK Award, the MK Award Foundation proudly presents the MK Edition – a set of three lavishly produced portfolios in a limited edition of 40, containing prints by thirty renowned visual artists of the former MKgalerie Rotterdam/Berlin. At the request of the MK Award Foundation, each artist contributed a new work. Each of the three portfolios comprises prints (40×50 cm) by ten artists. The portfolios of the MK Edition are available as a courtesy gift to Benefactors of MK Award Foundation.
