Art and culture
NN Group actively seeks to promote art and culture because we believe art inspires and connects. Our goal is to help make art and culture more accessible for people of all ages and backgrounds, with a focus on the Rotterdam and The Hague region. NN invests in cultural partnerships with Dutch museums and artists through supporting exhibitions for a broad audience, stimulating cultural entrepreneurship, and commissioning pieces for the NN art collection.
The NN Group Art collection
NN Group has a corporate art collection of about 2,000 artworks, that are on display in our Dutch offices. Experimentation, research and innovation are the art collection’s criteria, with a focus on artists who have a connection with the Netherlands. The history of this art collection dates back to the beginning of the 20th century and contains several disciplines: Dutch painting, photography, works on paper, glass art, sculptures and video art.
Contemporary art prize
The NN Art Award, an incentive prize connected to the Art Rotterdam art fair, has been awarded annually since 2017. Both new talent and mid-career artists are eligible for this prize of EUR 10,000. NN Group also purchases artworks by the nominees for the NN Art Collection.
By investing in cultural sponsorships, NN Group connects with local communities, inspire employees and engages with our external audiences and customers.
