Curator: Colin Huizing

For the exhibition Air, guest curator Colin Huizing invited internationally renowned artists whose installations, objects and performances make the phenomenon of air tangible and question it. A large number of works in the exhibition allow you to experience the beauty and essence of air, but there are also works that directly or indirectly draw attention to the endangered quality of air in our atmosphere, the downside of our current prosperity. They indicate the spirit of the times in different ways, but above all draw attention to neglected details and thus make us aware of the world in which we live. The exhibition, which covers the vast majority of Kranenburgh’s new wing, unfolds like an exciting journey through the halls and allows the visitor to see, hear, feel and contemplate air.

The Museum of Silence is back in the Netherlands: in De Ketelfactory, Schiedam.

opening Saturday, 26 January 2019, 3 – 6 p.m.

For the best part of a decade, between 1992 and 2001, a mysterious Museum of Silence travelled through our country. In galleries, museums, convents and libraries, curator and artist Rob G.M. Vrakking exhibited objects that related to silence. In 1992 he used mail art to ask hundreds of national and international artists to send him an object about silence.

The response was overwhelming: he was sent sculptures, paintings, drawings, poetry and art objects. From these, Vrakking compiled his Museum of Silence. “Silence is a rare phenomenon in our culture,” he wrote in the Museum’s catalogue.

After ten years, Vrakking decided to part with the Museum of Silence. He consigned the extraordinary collection to the Karl Ernst Osthaus Museum in Hagen, by the German border. This is a museum that has devoted itself to ‘orphaned collections’. The Silence collection has since led a slumbering existence in its attic. Curator Vrakking loved it: “The Museum of Silence, leading a still life. If the key gets lost now, it’s reached its goal.” But it never came to that.

In the NRC Handelsblad of the 2nd of March 2018, Kester Freriks – writer of the book Silence, space, darkness – appeals for the Museum of Silence to be brought back to the Netherlands and for this valuable, quirky and adventurous collection to be shown here. De Ketelfactory accepted the invitation. At the initiative of director and artist Winnie Teschmacher, the Silence collection will be shown there next year. In the meantime, the collection will be complemented with new works on Silence, created by artists with whom Teschmacher has built up an artistic connection over the years. Winnie Teschmacher asked these artists the same question as Vrakking did twenty years ago: “Create a work of art about Silence.”

Rotterdam (NL)

In the autumn of 2018, the Kunsthal Rotterdam will cover the complete range of kinetic (moving) art in the exhibition Action <-> Reaction. It will feature work by the most famous kinetic artists in the world. This impressive retrospective will offer Kunsthal visitors an opportunity to experience art that appeals to all the senses. Feel, watch, smell, hear and experience the rhythms, flashes, vibrations, instabilities and force fields right up to the cosmos! The exhibition is a revival of the successful 2013 Paris exhibition ‘Dynamo’ and is realised in close collaboration with the Grand Palais in Paris.
With over ninety artworks, subdivided into twelve themes (light, movement, structure, rhythm, radiation, vibration, instability, spatiality, vortex (swirling), immateriality, force fields and cosmos), the exhibition will show an impressive retrospective of kinetic art, including its history and the various aspects and perspectives that make this art kinetic. The artists John Armleder, Pol Bury, Alexander Calder, Jan van Munster, Ann Veronica Janssens, Philippe Decrauzat, Jeppe Hein, Anish Kapoor, Zilvinas Kempinas, Frantisek Kupka, Yayoi Kusama, Julio Le Parc, Francois Morellet, Jesus Rafael Soto and many others, will all be represented by their work.

PRIÈRE DE TOUCHER – The Touch of Art
11 February until 16 May 2016
Tinguely Museum - Basel (CH)

The exhibition is centered around the sense of touch and the haptic system as a possibility of aesthetic perception, and it throws up a series of questions at the same time: How do we perceive tactile art? What happens when our skin suddenly plays the main role in the experiencing of art? Even without direct physical contact with the beholder, can artworks appeal to their sense of touch? Can tactile experiences be described and translated into images? Works from entirely different eras testify to an understanding of art that includes the tactile dimension. Tactility has increasingly become a deliberately employed design element since the mid-20th century.

21 September 2013 until 23 October 2016

‘The exhibition in the Stedelijk Museum Schiedam is one we all eagerly await.’

With the exhibition entitled Ik hou van Holland. Nederlandse kunst na 1945 (I Love Holland. Dutch post-war art), the Stedelijk Museum Schiedam will present a comprehensive overview of post-war Dutch art. An overview of this quality, magnitude and depth has never been shown in the Netherlands. It displays the developments in Dutch contemporary art, and links these to developments in society.
