Online vernissage

NURIA will be officially opened on Friday evening with a vernissage via Webex. The artists will also appear at this and some of them will say something about their works. Afterwards there is still the opportunity to ask questions to the artists, because we would also like to create an online exchange between artists and art lovers. You will find out more information about the exact procedure of the vernissage soon.

online exhibition

With a heavy heart, we had to make the decision this week to hold NURIA 2021 as an online exhibition on the "Art Matrix" platform. We were really looking forward to the implementation in the park hall and park café of the Festhalle Ilmenau, but the current situation does not offer us any planning security for the face-to-face event. Nevertheless, we would like NURIA to take place in any case. If the current uncertain planning situation does not allow it, then also in a different format - namely online. This way we can still exhibit the great works of our many different artists and don't have to cancel the event completely due to the dynamic situation. NURIA will take place via the "Art Matrix" platform. There are 3D exhibition rooms in which the works of our artists will hang. After the opening ceremony on Friday evening, the exhibition will be open until Sunday, June 20th, 2021. In contrast to the NURIA in presence, the online exhibition will not cost admission. This will be accessible via a link which we will share via our social media channels and website.
