Art and culture
Art inspires and connects
Art inspires and connects. It has the ability to move you. It evokes emotions and touches your heart. Art can make you think differently and encourage creativity. Enjoying art together, and the stories behind the pieces, gives a different point of view on life.
Art can enrich anyone's life. That is why NN Group is committed to making art and culture accessible to everyone. Because what matters to you matters to us. You matter.
NN Art Collection
Art challenges you to look at the world around you from a new perspective. Artists are known as the pioneers of their time. NN Group supports artists by acquiring artworks for the NN Art Collection.
The NN Art Collection consists of 2,000 works of art, which can be seen in our Dutch offices. They contribute to an inspiring work environment and connect employees with contemporary art. Three themes are central to the collection: experimentation, research, and innovation, with a focus on artists who completed part of their art education in the Netherlands.
These three themes are the foundation of the NN Art Award. We grant this award annually at Art Rotterdam to an exceptionally talented artist who has been trained in the Netherlands and whose work can be seen at the art fair. With the NN Art Award, we aim to highlight the exceptional quality of Dutch art education. The award consists of a cash prize of 10,000 euros. In addition, NN purchases work from the nominees for our corporate collection.
