With a view to promoting art from the Netherlands abroad, the Mondriaan Fund organizes special visitors programs for foreign visual art professionals. Visitors programs are organized for curators and other professionals to offer greater insight into contemporary visual arts from the Netherlands and to strengthen international ties and promote the exchange of ideas. Professionals are invited to the Netherlands for uniquely tailored programs of visits to museums, galleries, art centers, and artists. The aim of these visits is to encourage international exchange projects. Each year The Mondriaan Fund invites about 20 guests to participate in the Visitors program. Foreign professionals can participate in the international visitors’ programme, which allows them to become acquainted with art in the Netherlands.
