LATEST NEWS

I am very pleased to announce that the exhibition Distant Kinship will be opened on 26 November 2021 by the Dutch Ambassador to New Zealand, Mrs Mira Woldberg, in the Aratoi Wairarapa Museum of Art and History in Masterton, New Zealand. This is the final leg of a two year tour of this show which started in September 2019 in Bergen, the Netherlands, and was shown in the past year also in the Whangarei Art Museum, Whangarei, and the Waikato Museum in Hamilton, both in New Zealand.

It was a honour to be invited this year to be the curator of the Dutch selection for the III Novosibirsk International Triennial of Contemporary Graphic Arts 2021. One of the selected artists of the Dutch section, Marcelle Hanselaar, won a prize! This entry was sponsored by the Embassy of the Netherlands in Russia. More information below.

III NOVOSIBIRSK INTERNATIONAL TRIENNIAL OF CONTEMPORARY GRAPHIC ARTS

I was invited to be the Curator of the Dutch entry for this Triennial. I have chosen printmakers who reflect different aspects of the Netherlands: how, maybe as a result of living in this crowded country, some artists create a personal space for their figures where only they exist;  how, on the other hand, there is also the wide, low country, with its endless horizons, rivers, skies, dunes and polders; and finally there are those artists (and I included myself here), who need to escape the denseness of the homeland and travel. Their images tell of other cultures and natures. The selected artists are: Hans Andringa, Bea van der Heijden, Marcelle Hanselaar, Elsbeth Cochius, Jadranka Njegovan, Siemen Dijkstra, Jan Naezer, Gea Karhof, Nan Mulder and Rolf Weijburg.
