Bridging the divide

Cecile founded GET LOST – art route in 2015 to bridge the gap between businesses and the art world. The concept started from the premise that both worlds have the ability to inspire the other.

GET LOST – art route was a unique, collaborative project between young artists and business organisations. It brought the two together in order to develop public art routes where an organisation commissions young artists to make an artwork that will be temporarily placed in public space.

GET LOST is innovative in its approach, emphasising the importance of artistic freedom and the autonomy of artists so as not to compromise the quality of the artwork while taking a step toward the commercial world. At the same time, it challenges organisations to open up to the experimental character of the art world and young talent in particular. 

The first edition of GET LOST – art route took place at de Zuidas in Amsterdam from June to September 2015.
