Exhibitions and Publications The Mondriaan Foundation supports galleries, museums and exhibition spaces that exhibit contemporary art or design from the Netherlands. The main criteria are an institution’s artistic standing and reputation, which are assessed on the basis of its exhibition programme. The Mondriaan Foundation usually helps to cover the cost of transporting works of art, plus the cost of artists’ travel and accommodation. We also co-support the cost of publications that provide contextual information about artists’ work. In 2010, we supported 201 exhibitions/publications in 49 countries. The list on the right page gives an overview of countries where the Mondriaan Foundation contributed to art and design presentations in 2010.

Art Fairs The presentation of art and design from the Netherlands at leading international art fairs has proven to be an important promotional tool. These fairs are a valuable source of international contacts for the participating galleries and artists. They create opportunities for new exhibitions and lead to acquisitions by collectors and museums all over the world. The Mondriaan Foundation supports participation in art fairs by contributing to the rental of stands. A gallery can get a refund for half the rent of a stand if at least half the stand space is used to present art from the Netherlands. A number of relevant art fairs are selected each year. In 2010, the selection comprised Arco Madrid; Art Basel; Art Basel Art Statement; Art Basel Art Unlimited; Art Basel Liste; Art Basel Miami Beach; Art Forum Berlin; Collect London; Design Miami; Design Miami Basel; Fiac Paris; Frieze Art Fair London; Nada Art Fair Miami; Paris Photo; Sofa Chicago; Sofa New York; 44
