Gerrit turns 50, Willem only 28
In honor of both birthdays of the Gerrit Rietveld Academie and the Sandberg Institution, they organise the exhibition “Gerrit turns 50, Willem only 28”. From the 3th of November till the 25th of November you can enjoy the exhibition on their Campus in Amsterdam.
Diverse artworks, remarkable initiatives, important events, memorable people, misfits, protests and projects tell the story about the educational institutions. Sculptures, paintings, drawings, films, furniture, books, magazines, maps and posters are exposed during the Ecxhibition. The many loans from museums, private collections, artists’ studios and even work found in dusty attic rooms have been brought together with the archives of both institutes by head curator Moritz Küng in collaboration with guest curators. The exhibition provides an overview of progressive education and the various makers, writers and thinkers of both programs. An eclectic selection of established names and upcoming talents and unexpected artists. Enjoy the work of Alex van Warmerdam, Jan des Bouvrie, Maria Barnas, Melanie Bonajo and Sophie Hardeman.
During the exhibition, the Studium Generale of the Rietveld Academie and the Sandberg Institute organize different events. Find more information about the program with lectures, performances and meetings at rietveldacademie.nl and sandberg.nl. Access to the exhibition is free.
