ATELIER AM kicked off with the exhibition programme DE KWEKERIJ (The Plant Nursery) in Corrosia from 18 May until 5 October 2022. Together with Corrosia, AM gave the opportunity to ten (inter)national and innovative visual artists to work with the context of Almere. All participating artists recently graduated from Dutch art academies when they participated. They offered an insight into their creating process which is open to the public since their studios in DE KWEKERIJ (THE PLANT NURSERY) were always available to visit. In other words, you got to know the artists and their work from close by and you could see the developments happening live.

Next to the exhibition in Corrosia, AM created four public programmes together with the artists and local cultural partners such as Land Art Flevoland, M. and StrandLAB. These took place in several districts in Almere and were free of charge.

The exhibition programme was divided into four periods each of five weeks. During every period two—and sometimes three—artists worked alongside each other in Corrosia. All artists worked together with one cultural partner and organised a public programme during every period.
