This year, Unseen Amsterdam is driven by the need to present, reflect on and discuss solutions for the ever-pressing social and environmental issues facing our world. With photography and the art world generally being able to act as a catalyst for change,and featuring many artists who explore these issues and themes, this year’s event encourages visitors to address how we view and act on climate change.
Teaming up with Tesla—a game-changer in sustainable energy solutions with increasingly affordable electric cars—for this year’s event, you can take an all-new podcast tour through Unseen Amsterdam with The 2018 Art Trail, powered by Tesla. By tuning into Unseen Soundcloud, you can fully immerse yourself in every corner of Unseen Amsterdam 2018. We’ve highlighted 12 artists to help you navigate through the fair, each recognised for their work addressing four key themes: Innovation, Sustainability, Future and Disruption.
From the 12 featured artists, the artistic collective 280A was selected as the winner for their compelling investigation of the collective in times of individualisation, virtualisation, digitalisation and fragmentation. Don’t miss 280A’s Artist Talk on Saturday the 22nd of September, from 21.00 until 22.00, at the Tesla Store, Pieter Cornelisz Hoofstraat 29HS, Amsterdam during out exciting Open Gallery Night!
In order to have the chance to win a Tesla for a weekend or a limited edition print of one of the artists of collective 280A, you can write your details on the leaflet you will receive at the entrance desk at Unseen Amsterdam 2018 and leave it in the dedicated boxes on the terrain.
