    The concept of RAW EXPO stands apart from other exhibitions. It is usual that one or more curators a concept, this art search and the result is shown to an audience. RAW EXPO is different. The participants in the RAW ART FAIR asks for one or more works that are too large for a booth to propose the RAW EXPO. In addition, young, onafhakelijke artists through social media invited to submit work. Crowdfunding as the basis for an exhibition. From these proposals, a choice is made ??by the trustee of RAW EXPO. The version of RAW EXPO in 2012 has proven that it can. It yielded a surprising and multifaceted exhibition. The audience and the artists responded very positively.

    Unlike last year, the organization of the second edition of RAW EXPO chosen a theme. The theme of the RAW EXPO 2013 China. With this exhibition we want to refer to the long history between the Netherlands and China, but also to the future of the neighborhood: Katendrecht. Settled there over a hundred years ago, the first Chinese in the Netherlands. On Katendrecht will in the near future some big Chinese companies to establish and the picture dramatically. By the next RAW EXPO a Chinese flavor to give we walk ahead to this development.

    RAW EXPO will, together with the RAW Art Fair held in Warehouse Santos on Katendrecht. RAW Art Fair 2013 will be held on the first three floors, RAW EXPO on floor 4 and 5.

    Piet de Young (former Chief Curator of the Kröller Müller Museum Boijmans van Beuningen Museum and Van Abbe Museum), the exhibition together again. He is this year supported by Benjamin Li and Beatrice Thicker. As a consultant, Martijn Kielstra Canvas International Art attracted.

    For the second edition of RAW EXPO We are looking for Chinese artists working in the Netherlands or exhibit and artists whose work refers to China.

    We invite and challenge you this year to join the RAW EXPO CHINA!
