Rijksmuseum Twenthe is open every last Thursday evening of the month with a program especially for young people and young professionals. During these RMT NEXT evenings, various activities are organized in which you can learn more about the works of art, artists and exhibitions in RMT in a relaxed atmosphere. Be surprised by (artist) talks, speed tours, performances, special cocktails and other activities.
During the first edition of RMT NEXT we delve into the world of art collecting and buying art. Various speed tours take a closer look at the question of how a museum collection is created. And if you want to know how you can start collecting art yourself, you can attend the mini masterclass Intro into Art Collecting of the Young Collectors Circle. In addition, we will talk with internet artist Jan Robert Leegte about one of the newest developments in the art world: NFTs. These NFTs are non-fungible tokens, digital items that are traded within the crypto world.
The reason for the theme Welcome to the (digital) art world are the two exhibitions on collecting art that are currently on display. The exhibition Wilploo Collection – sliding landscape provides a large overview of the Wilploo Collection. Over the past ten years, the museum has received various donations from this private collection of contemporary art, which was brought together by the Enschede collector Ingrid Blans. We also have the collection exhibition After the hunt! Ten years of collecting in 100 works of art in which we as a museum take stock of ten years of collecting.
