In this exhibition Anne-Marie opens up parts of the complex trajectory she embarked on at the start of 2014 where she began to formulate the Artist Investment Proposition. Through research she is grapples with the logic of value (“everyone understands the value of logic but what is the logic of value?”) and in this show she particularly deals with the representations of this concept through the material and immaterial one finds in the art world. The trajectory travels through renowned art fairs where she questions art of value or the value of art, the artist as entrepreneur or start-up, emotional versus capital engagements, copyright and intellectual property, the booming art market and disparity amongst artist incomes.

Anne-Marie applies knowledge from the longstanding heritage between art and advertising and alludes to the construction of phantasmagoric spaces used to persuade consumerism.

For the Ongoing Conversation series she will collaborate with curator Alexandra Landre and their conversation will accompany the exhibition in the form of a printed publication which will be presented during the opening night.

The Ongoing Conversation II offers a series of fast-paced one-day exhibitions conceived as a platform to show and share the interest of ongoing artistic research.

In the seven short exhibitions, the seven graduating students of MAR will freeze the momentum of their artistic research process to create a decisive entry into the end phase of their explorations. Stringed together over the course of one month, these milestones create a combined itinerary. The exhibitions bring you past sites of contaminated mushrooms, a hot bedroom in Curacao, a reflection on religious power at the European Parliament, a playful ritual, an unfolding of emptiness, a reconstruction of a conceptual architecture from the past and axiological dilemma’s in art and commerce. 

This project is the outcome of a collaboration between 1646 and the Master Artistic Research, The Hague.
The Master Artistic Research is a master programme for artists, based at the Royal Academy of Art and the Royal Conservatoire, The Hague.
