For the 2016 iteration of Exchange Rates, IS-projects brings together a variety of non-objective art from several artists, mainly from the Netherlands, to an international audience in Bushwick. Selected artists are René van den Bos (Haarlem), René Eicke (Utrecht), Richard van der Aa (Paris), Jasper van der Graaf (Apeldoorn), Guido Winkler (Leiden) and Jason Hughes (Brooklyn). These artists have unique and diverse viewpoints in their practice, yet they share a language based on the vocabulary of international formalism.
Based in Leiden, Netherlands, IS-projects opened in December of 2007 with a gathering of twenty artists from Australia, Europe, and the USA. Since then, it has expanded into a stage for an international exchange, with exhibitions and dialogues focusing on contemporary, nonobjective art that emerged in the early 2000's. IS-projects organizes group shows and publishes editions and strives to connect artists from the Netherlands with artists working abroad.
