Group exhibition | No milk today

Group exhibition | No milk today

8 September - 6 October

The exhibition "No milk today" took place in the former dairy factory in Kolderveen. It was held to mark the end of the milk industry there and the transformation of the space into a place for artists and craftspeople to live and work. The exhibition was held in 2001. Since then the location has served as a place for production and inspiration for the artists that live and work there as well as for artists-in-residence who use the guest studio. This exhibition marked a turning point in the way the building was used.
