De tentoonstelling Hydrography II brengt zeventien kunstenaars bijeen die in hun werk gebruikmaken van waterverf. Zij passen het materiaal op onconventionele wijze toe. De essentiële eigenschappen van waterverf, zoals de grote kleur- en lichtkracht en de transparantie, zijn autonoom aanwezig in de werken, die qua uitgangspunt en werkwijze onderling heel verschillend zijn. De kunstenaars hanteren allen een abstracte vormentaal.

For the first exhibition in 2012 dr. julius | ap will present FutureShock OneTwo, a group show featuring a selection of international artists from three continents. Participants each display a work of theirs that they feel looks ahead towards the future.

The title reflects the current uncertainty in all areas of life: it seems to be increasingly clear that things will not evolve as predictably and smoothly as they have in the past. However, this is also a great opportunity for innovation. The exhibition wants to ask what role the International New Concrete and neighboring fields of art might play in this new era.

An important goal of this exhibition is to have the artists join a general discussion on the future of non-objective art, such as its potential to influence one’s perspective on life, especially in comparison with narrative forms of art. Moreover, it is to explore the relation of art and value: in times of a fundamental crisis in the monetary system, can money really be the adequate equivalent in which to trade art? Is the work of the artist actually not more than money can ever be? Could art be an alternative system of values, mentally and materially?
