Prelude exhibition – bonus event?
The Prelude events are part of our exhibition periods and the event’s online PR. As a bonus event they are included in the offer for early registrations. All artworks will also be shown in the large exhibitions.
The subjects of participants’ artworks are not required to relate to William Turner or any other theme! According to our rules, all artists can choose their subjects freely! The artistic design and content of the exhibition theme is done by ourselves! It accompanies the events as a PR measure.
Just as when we combine the performing arts with poetry, music, sculpture, art objects, light and meditation at our large art installations in Cologne and other cities, we do the same at the Prelude events. At the Prelude events, however, images are not arranged by color. Meditation instruction is available, but the meditative concept is introduced instead in the form of an homage to a famous poet or artist. The theme of the Prelude events will be changed every year!
