  3. Yin Xiuzhen
    Soloexhibition in the Groninger Museum from 16 June 2012 - 18 November 2012

    Yin Xiuzhen (1963) is one of the most prominent artists of her generation. Especially for the exhibition in the Groninger Museum, Yin worked on the cityscape of Groningen, which is composed of clothes worn by citizens of Groningen. In addition to recent work, the presentation also contains key works such as Collective Subconscious (2007), Thought (2009) and Waves (2009-2010). The Weapon installation (2003-2007) will also be on display.
    Yin Xiuzhen is most famous for her installations that are made of second-hand clothes. These installations can be regarded as a reflection on the mega-makeover that cities such as Beijing and Shanghai are currently undergoing. In her work, she combines individual experience with these enormous societal changes.

  5. Documentaire
    Ruud van Empel. De onschuld voorbij
    Westerdok film
    50 min.

    Ruud van Empel (1958) behoort tot de meest bijzondere fotokunstenaars van dit moment. Uit duizenden fragmenten van digitale foto’s stelt hij nieuwe beelden samen die in hun detaillering zeer levensecht en natuurgetrouw overkomen, maar die een wereld voortoveren die nooit heeft bestaan.
    Regisseur (en broer-van) Erik van Empel maakte dit bijzondere documentaire portret, waarin Ruud van Empel onder meer gevolgd wordt tijdens bezoeken aan zijn exposities in Japan en New York.

    De tentoonstelling Ruud van Empel. Fotowerken 1995-2010 is te zien in het Groninger Museum van 10 september 2011 tot 27 november 2011

The museum shows modern and contemporary art, fashion and design, as well as historic arts.
