Tagtics is going to be an exhibition in Quartair, The Hague (NL) from November 9 till December 1, 2013 organized by artists Jeroen Glas, Sibylle Eimermacher, Guido Nieuwendijk and Marije Vermeulen.

Abstraction in its broadest sense will be a recurring and connecting element in the exhibition, where we’ll investigate what distinguishes the participating artists, what the different starting points are and how each artist finds the way to his/her formal language.

The formal and personal interests and themes in the work of the artists will be categorized as <tags> which emphasize mutual similarities. These Tags can connect different artists, but there are also Tags that have no connections. These are often personal methods, triggers and associations. Usually you don’t see this at first glance in the works. Uncovering these connections is a unifying theme in this exhibition. This process of connecting and creating a network will also be reflected in the design of the exhibition space. The exhibition can be experienced as a blog, with tags as search queries. Interfaces, associations and motives impose a link between the works, which aim is giving a richer picture of the artworks and the artists.

Networking is an important part of this exhibition. We will also organize a network evening on saturday, November 15, so save the date!

The participating artists are Marleen Sleeuwits (NL), Mischa Rakier (NL), Ralph De Jongh (NL), Alain Biltereyst (BE), Julie Alpert (US), Paul Komada (US), Robert Nilsen (NO), Per Formo (NO), Jeroen Glas (NL), Sibylle Eimermacher (GER), Marije Vermeulen (NL), Guido Nieuwendijk (NL).
