Parallel to Art Rotterdam 2012, the MK Award Foundation organizes the spectacular MK Award Fundraiser Show (February 8 – 12, 2012). 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.
Participating artists include Bas van Beek, Bart Benschop, Willem Besselink, Wim Bosch, Marian Breedveld, Bert Danckaert, Xing Danwen, Otto Egberts, William Engelen, Serge Game, Kamp Horst, Ditty Ketting, Anastasia Khoroshilova, Marjan Laaper, Matrijs van Merg, Tiina Mielonen, Holger Niehaus, Jan van Nuenen, Miyuki Okuyama, Pim Palsgraaf, Micha Patiniott, Axel Reusch, Jochem Rotteveel, Marleen Sleeuwits, Beat Streuli, Aram Tanis, Hanneke van Velzen, Wynolt Visser, Shane Waltener and Hans Wilschut.
