In 2023, the monasteries of the Heilige Driehoek in Oosterhout, North Brabant, will play host to the third instalment of a contemporary art biennial of international standing. Continuing under a new moniker, the h3h biennial of 2023 will have Faith as its theme.

Curators Hendrik Driessen (former director of Museum De Pont Tilburg) and Rebecca Nelemans (independent curator) have invited 2 artists from the Netherlands and abroad to exhibit new and existing work, inspired by the unique location’s rich historical and spiritual traditions. The artists are: Ghada Amer, Maarten Baas, David Bade, Marwan Bassiouni, David Claerbout, Delphine Courtillot, Anne Geene, Lisette de Greeuw, Loek Grootjans, Elise ’t Hart, Frank Havermans, Laura Henno, Ann Veronica Janssens, Folkert de Jong, Alicja Kwade, Rudy Luijters, Rick van Meel, Paulien Oltheten, Kathrin Schlegel, Fiona Tan, Fran Van Coppenolle, Ine Vermee, Wessel Verrijt, Dré Wapenaar and Romee van Oers.

The curators have also selected works by the late Piet den Blanken and JCJ Vanderheyden.


The curators greatly value the artists’ ability to forge a bond between their work, a specific location on the monastery premises, and the theme of Faith. The symbiosis emerging from the work and the site played a deciding role in the artist selection. The pieces on display will vary from paintings, sculptures, (audio) installations, photography and video to monumental landscape interventions.

The h3h biennial is financially co-funded by:
