Four Flags is a temporary project to support artists during this period of isolation and to promote art in the public space. Four Flags aims to show physical art at a moment when the art experience is limited and mainly virtual. Many exhibitions are frozen like sleeping beauties in their institutional cocoon. When viewers can’t enter, the art comes outside. Four Flags locks out what is locked in.
Four Flags is an initiative of Julia Mullié and Nick Terra from Amsterdam. The idea arose when they enjoyed the sun on the windowsill of their house in Amsterdam and were looking at the flag holders on their facade. They decided to invite 30 artists to create a flag. Each flag is produced as an edition of 4 (+1 AP) and sold at € 150 (excluding shipping costs). The entire proceeds go to the artist.
