Last weekend I decided to visit the NRW Art Exhibit in the Museum Kunstpalast Dusseldorf which had been highly recommended to me by Barbara, our Personal Assistant at the Breidenbacher Hof. The exhibit has been held every year for over 100 years now and is the biggest of its kind in Germany. Opened on February 15th and taking place only until March 9th 2014, I told myself: „You’d rather be quick!“ and I was very impressed by the amount of art displayed.
This year, 140 regional artists have been chosen by the jury to show their artwork to other artists and visitors. This exhibit provides a unique insight into the art scene of Dusseldorf. It is comprised of impressive sculptures, striking photographs, beautiful paintings and other kinds of graphic works. What I liked most about this exhibit? No exhibition piece is like the other because each artist has a different experience, comprised of different styles and perspectives across different generations. I felt so excited because I never knew what to expect next, so everything was a surprise!
As a special experience you also have the chance to be guided through the exhibit by the artists themselves every day which gives you a closer insight into their artwork. Additionally, various performances are offered every Thursday and Sunday. So definitely make sure you stop by the NRW Art Exhibit during your stay at the Breidenbacher Hof, a Capella Hotel. Our wonderful Personal Assistants will be excited to give you any information you desire and further amazing activities here in Dusseldorf. I’m sure you will never forget these experiences!
