“Met twee vingers in je neus door de Corona-crisis”
5 juni 2020-1 september 2020
As during the last couple of months we have found ourselves in a spatio-temporal curve we have decided to not reopen Fuse with NDSM-Expo show VIII but instead with an "in-between" show titled 7.13. dedicated to the Corona Crisis and all it's implications; what has happened in these strange past months and what's our new reality or what do or don't we want it to be.
The artists and creators of the NDSM are inspired by images of Death, Lonelyness, Wodka, Icehockey, Elbowsneezing, Home made masks, Charts, True and Fakenews, Conspiracy theories, Solitary coughing, the new normal, 1,5 meter society and Clorox enema's, to name a few.
FESTIVE REOPENING and opening of NDSM Expo 7.13 on JUNE 5 5pm with Food and Drink and around 6.30 a performance by Duo Schuurink
Paint the Future
Starting June 5, 5 pm
The C crisis opens all kinds of unexpected possibilities. We were able to invite this very special expo to NDSM Fuse because we had a cancellation from France.
Paint a Future was founded in 2000 by artist Hetty van der Linden, who paints with children in disadvantaged situations all over the world. She asks the children to paint their dreams, to imagine that the paintbrush is a magic wand with which they can make their dreams come true.
Renowned artists from dozens of countries are inspired by the children’s drawings and thus incorporate such a drawing into their own painting. These paintings are then sold, and the children’s dreams are realized with the proceeds.
In this way, artist Peter Schenk realized the dream of Filipe, who drew a house. This house was built for Filipe with the proceeds from the painting. Blue and turquoise, exactly as in his dream.
With a painting from Paint a Future, there is not only a beautiful work of art on your wall. You also give a child the chance of a better future.
A child’s drawing becomes part of a painting, and the child’s dream comes true with the proceeds from the sale of the painting. Whether this is a house, a music instrument, or work for the parents: Paint a Future makes the children’s dreams come true. For more info check the website of paint a future at Paintafuture.org

You can't Paint that
Smash the Narrative Art Prize 2020
Will return in September
Due to the Corona crisis and it's subsequent closure of our Venue this wonderful exhibition had been on display for only a couple of days. Luckily we were able to reschedule so you can come visit in September.
Thought-provoking art from all around the world is brought together by Smash The Narrative. You are welcome to visit and to vote for the public prize award.
Now in its second year, the Smash the Narrative art prize brings together artists from around the world to present works centered around a current and controversial topic.
This year’s theme is You Can't Paint That! which revolves around issues of freedom of speech, taboo and censorship. How does it feel as a creator to be told what you can and cannot say? Are we entering a dystopian nightmare where even opinions dating back decades can be held against you? Has freedom of speech gone too far in enabling extremism and needs to be reeled in?
The exhibition will juxtapose the works of a large number of artists from all over the globe taking a wide range of approaches to such questions using a variety of different mediums in the hope of provoking thought and discussion among the public.
