Hester Alberdink Thijm, member of the GET LOST committee of recommendations and director of the AkzoNobel Art Foundation:'We value the opportunity to take part in the GET LOST – art route, because it engenders a wonderful synergy between artist, company and place. In our own public exhibition space, Art Space, we similarly try to forge connections with the outside world and to facilitate artistic encounters. Now the GET LOST – art route is doing the same thing in public spaces all throughout Zuidas. This is a unique and ideal platform for talented young artists to get exposure!’
