Discover the program of Marres

With an extensive program, Marres explores the physical and sensory experience of contemporary culture. Among other things, Marres explores this with exhibitions that move through the house like a landscape, a workshop series at the intersection of art and science under the title Training The Senses, and a participation and education program aimed at groups ranging from elementary school students to the elderly. With the talent development program Currents, Marres offers young creators a platform for professionalization. Marres also issues unique publications and develops walks with artists in the city and region.

In addition, Marres regularly opens its house and garden to young makers, such as at the performance festival Rooms, participates in the annual Festival Maas! and Museumnacht, and hosts the FASHIONCLASH Festival. Behind the house you will find the public city garden, where Marres regularly organizes activities such as picnics, performances or afternoons to pick fresh fruit.

See below an overview of both our current and upcoming exhibitions as well as our workshops, events, education program and publications.


With exhibitions that extend throughout the house, Marres sets itself apart from other art centers. These total installations take over rooms, hallways and stairwells, connecting walls, floors and ceilings. In this way, the exhibitions offer a landscape of shifting perspectives and unfamiliar walking routes to stimulate your sensory experience.
