(Past) NL Pop-up London
2010-12-16 until 2011-01-30

NL The Dutch Cultural Pop-up space in London
Ansuya Blom, Martin Effert, Risk Hazekamp, Renie Spoelstra, Willem Weismann, Bas Zoontjens .

‘You Are Here’ is an exhibition of Dutch contemporary visual art at the intersection –one might even say coordinates given the context- of two agendas.

On one hand the show is drawn from artists who have (previously) been nominated for the Sovereign European Art Prize, underscoring NL’s collaboration with the Sovereign Art Foundation.

However, rather than being a simple review or listing, the second agenda has been to draw on specific work from the eclectic group of nominees in order to elaborate a cohesive curatorial thematic. In this case it is one that fits aptly with the mission of NL – The Dutch Cultural Pop-Up Space in London.

(Past) Collectiepresentatie Kunst na 1945, Stedelijk Museum Schiedam
2010-02-14 until 2011-04-12

(Dutch) Het Stedelijk Museum Schiedam presenteert in 2010 de Collectiepresentatie Kunst na 1945. Voor deze tentoonstelling is het nieuwe collectieplan voor de Nederlandse kunst van na 1945 het uitgangspunt. Hierin ligt de nadruk op de verwantschappen tussen de kerncollecties. Vanuit de hedendaagse kunst maken vijf thema’s de verbinding met NUL en CoBrA. De thema’s zijn: Oorlog, Dieren, Materie, Reizen, Ritme & Regelmaat.
Samen met elf eindexamen leerlingen van het Stedelijk Gymnasium in Schiedam is het concept van de tentoonstelling verder uitgewerkt. De leerlingen hebben als assistent-conservatoren met de directeur van het museum een keuze van werken gemaakt, zaalteksten geschreven en innovatieve ideeën aangeleverd voor de vormgeving en inrichting van de tentoonstelling.
