Director of Unseen, Rixt Hulshoff Pol: “It is fantastic that we are able to show so many Unseen Premieres again this year. The involvement and willingness of such a large variety of participating galleries and artists to create authentic and new work prove that they really embrace the concept of Unseen. Whoever comes to Unseen in September to spot new and unseen work will be blown away by the scale and quality of the premieres.”
