1. Ralph Keuning neemt je mee langs de tentoonstellingen die deze zomer zijn te zien in Museum de Fundatie.

    Van Bob Dylan tot Friso ten Holt, deze zomer heeft Museum de Fundatie een opvallend programma met vier tentoonstellingen.
    Face Value - Bob Dylan
    Wat veel mensen niet weten, is dat Bob Dylan naast woordenkunstenaar ook fysieke kunst maakt. Zijn pasteltekeningen zijn even direct en ongepolijst als zijn muziek. De Fundatie toont deze zomer een serie van 12 portretten.
    Voor muziek en kunst kun je ook terecht in het atrium van De Fundatie. Hier vind je de geluidssculptuur ‘audire et videre I’ van Michiel Borstlap.
    Te zien t/m 20 augustus 2017
    Het late licht - Jeroen Krabbé
    Met zijn nieuwe serie 'Het late licht' keert Jeroen Krabbé terug naar het landschap rond zijn eigen huis in Dalfsen. In deze serie laat hij al het realistische los en schildert slechts in kleur en vorm. Het resultaat zijn zonnestralen als bliksemschichten en de aarde als gloeiende lava in kleine en grote abstracte werken.
    Te zien t/m 1 oktober 2017.
    Licht en lijnen - Friso ten Holt
    Ook Krabbé's leermeester Friso ten Holt is deze zomer te vinden in De Fundatie deze zomer. Zijn olieverfschilderijen, aquarellen, tekeningen en etsen vallen op door kleur en helderheid.
    Te zien t/m 1 oktober 2017
    Zomerexpo 2017
    In de bruisende ZomerExpo vind je schilderijen, tekeningen, video's, foto, sculpturen en installaties. Van ingetogen tot uitgelaten, een kakofonie van wisselende vormen en smaken in één thema: water.
    Te zien t/m 20 augustus 2017.

  2. Introduction video about the exhibition of the British artist Richard Deacon – SOME TIME, from My 27 to September 24 in the Middelheim Museum Antwerp.

    The exhibition SOME TIME is a solo show introducing work by Richard Deacon (Wales, °1949), one of Britain’s most fascinating contemporary artists. The thirty sculptures on display, including several recent works, are particulary diverse in size, design and material. They are presented on various locations in the museum park. The exhibition has come about in close collaboration with the artist. The central focus is on his sculpture Never Mind (1993), one of the Middelheim Museum’s key words. For his show, the original wooden version has been refabricated in stainless steel.

  3. No one knows what doesn’t yet exist. But identifying possible, probable and preferred futures can help us understand the present and the past. The plural is important; it reminds us not to try to predict the future, one single future. Just like art, futures studies (also called foresight) is more than a discipline. It is practice and method, a roundabout tour of understanding rather than a straight path to knowledge.

    We wanted to bring professional futurists together with artists, to see what they might have in common and how they might question each other. Therefore we composed ‘A Temporary Futures Institute’ around the ‘four futures’ that Professor Jim Dator of the University of Hawaii proposed in the late 1960s. He identified ‘continued growth’, ‘collapse’, ‘discipline’ and ‘transformation’ as generic images we may use to envision preferred futures.

    ‘A Temporary Futures Institute’ wants us to think associatively and critically about things to come rather than looking back at how previous periods imagined ‘the future’. It uses the basic tools of exhibition-making – authors and audiences, pictures and stories, surfaces and spaces – to probe some possible futures. How shall exhibitions stimulate our thinking? Must they become immersive environments to lure us away from our screens? How autonomous will they, and the art and artists they feature, be in relation to the rest of the world?

    The public programme for ‘A Temporary Futures Institute’ is a series of workshops addressing specific themes to do with futures and with Antwerp, such as art, fashion, architecture, global trade, education or the welfare state. The international futures conference ‘Design, Develop, Transform’ takes place at M HKA on 16–17 June. See muhka.be and ddtconference.org.

    We thank all participants and supporters of this experimental venture!

  4. In the work of British artist Fiona Banner (Merseyside, 1966), opposites play a significant role. This concerns the relationship between words and images, man and machines, but also between the physical world and the virtual one. Her work comprises sculpture, drawings, video installations, performances, posters and books. The exhibition is Banner’s first major presentation in the Netherlands.

    The exhibition’s title Runway (AW17), refers to a runway as a space of performance, evoking the architecture of fashion shows, as well as a space associated with aircraft. By deploying the double meaning she draws parallels between a catwalk show, the area of the military aeroplanes and the theatre of the exhibition space.

  5. An interview with artist Qiu Zhijie and curator Davide Quadrio about the exhibition Qiu Zhijie: Journeys without Arrivals which is on view from 1 April until 24 September 2017 in the Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven.

    n interview with artist Qiu Zhijie and curator Davide Quadrio about the exhibition Qiu Zhijie: Journeys without Arrivals which is on view from 1 April until 24 September 2017 in the Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven.
    The solo exhibition Qiu Zhijie: Journeys without Arrivals is the first comprehensive overview of Qiu Zhijie, one of the most important Chinese artists of his generation. The wide spectrum of his artworks—ranging in media and entangling different temporalities and geographies—unveils an intimate portrait of the artist as a polymath, whose artistic work is an integral part of a larger, holistic approach to life. Embracing the concept of total art, Qiu demonstrates the role of art as a powerful engine for coming to terms with change, tradition and globalisation in China and across the world. Qiu’s work draws on certain pictorial traditions, from calligraphy to handicraft techniques, and pushes them into the present. He represents an ideal example of an artist as a go-between, whose broad ideas and engagements—as an artist, merchant, teacher and political activist—become strong, resolute and profound images of the contemporary world.
