Together with Stedelijk Museum, we will be presenting the serie Trouw Invites… in collaboration with the three international art institutes; Palais de Tokyo (Paris), Beirut (Caïro) and New Museum (New York). From July to December 2014, there’ll be three exhibitions in our basement area De Hal. This monumental space will serve as the stage for a unique cooperation in an environment where the visual arts and club culture will confront each other head-on.
The serie Trouw Invites… will be organized following the successful program of Stedelijk at Trouw. This sequence of exhibitions and performances originated from the already existing bond between Stedelijk Museum and TrouwAmsterdam in order to explore their common ground between the subjects of art, dance and club.
It’s now the turn for three other institutions to fill our basement with art. The three institutions will each invite a visual artist who will represent the themes of transiency and temporality in their work. The artists will create a complete new experience in order to activate the themes and specific content of the building. By doing this, they will create entirely new works that will be specially designed for this exhibition.
Trouw Invites… will take place from June to December 2014, and every exhibition can be visited during the course of one month.
