Y L A - YOUNG LUXEMBOURGISH ARTISTS

1st Edition 2021

The original idea of YLA (Young Luxembourgish Artists) is based on the loose artist group 'Young British Artists', which was founded in London, UK, in 1988 with artists such as Tracey Emin, Damien Hirst, Jenny Saville, Cornelia Parker, Sarah Lucas, Gary Hume, Tacity Dean,… The majority of these artists studied Fine Art at Goldsmiths College of Art. They became known for their shock tactics and their openness to experiment with different materials and media. Their exhibition 'Sensation' received much attention and was widely discussed in the press. 

 

YLA is a group of 12 young Luxembourgish artists, the majority of whom have completed studies in fine arts. All of them have been born between the 1980s and 1990s. The artists of the group are by no means a collective of artists, but all represent different styles, characteristics and express themselves through different media. They deal with current issues and ask questions. The luxembourgish artists have all completed their studies abroad, due to the lack of art schools in their own country. This is by no means a criticism,  however, as studying abroad broadens horizons and opens up new pathways. 

 

The majority of the artists have had few or even no exhibitions in Luxembourg, but some abroad, and few of gallery nature. We are happy to provide a base at the beginning of their career and to show their talent to a large audience.
