Exhibition On the Move at Stedelijk Museum

My work One Swimming Pool will be on view at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam. On the Move is the latest edition of the Proposals for Municipal Art Acquisitions that the museum organizes every two years. The exhibition runs from August 29 till January 18, 2015. The opening is on August 28 (19.30-22.00).

Connected to this show I will also install the work on the floor a few times. You’re invited to come and see this temporary performance at the auditorium of the Stedelijk Museum, on the following dates:
October 11,
November 29
December 27&28.

I’ll also be teaching a couple of workshops for children in the museum.

Info about the show from the press release: On the Move focuses on recent developments in photography and reveals the myriad ways in which artists and photographers build their narratives in dialogue with graphic designers. The title On the Move refers to the journeys taken by many of the photographers in creating their projects, as well as the new directions in photography. Last autumn, the Stedelijk invited artists living and/or working in the Netherlands to submit work in which they explore new, playful, critical, and challenging forms of narrativity. The museum received 471 submissions.

A jury consisting of Carolien Glazenburg (curator of graphic design, Stedelijk Museum), Anne Ruygt (junior curator of photography, Stedelijk Museum), Ad van Denderen (photographer), Karin Krijgsman (course leader of the photography department at the AKV St. Joost), and Dimitri Nieuwenhuizen (co-founder of design studio LUST) selected 28 submissions from young and emerging artists. The selected works include both existing projects and works never previously exhibited, which are currently being developed especially for the exhibition.
