The Stedelijk Museum stages the first large-scale museum survey of Metahaven, bringing together the collective's new moving image work with their renowned design practice. As Metahaven, artists Vinca Kruk and Daniel van der Velden have achieved international acclaim for their work, spanning the genres of visual art, design, and film.
This exhibition features the premiere of Eurasia (Questions on Happiness), a film installation jointly commissioned by the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam and the Institute of Contemporary Arts, London that will be simultaneously shown at both locations.
The Stedelijk presents the first museum retrospective of Lily van der Stokker, featuring drawings and wall paintings from the late 1980s to the present.
Van der Stokker's visual language of flowers, looping lines, clouds and curlicues in bold bright colors raises questions about what we regard as typically feminine. Her work can be placed in the tradition of feminist art, which does not conform to prevailing standards of good taste. As such, she often exploits concepts that are ‘banned’ from contemporary art, such as the frivolous and decorative.
Amsterdam's Stedelijk Museum, the permanent home of the Dutch National Museum of Modern Art, has one of the richest modern art collections in the world. As well as regularly rotating temporary exhibitions, the museum houses many modern classics.
The permanent collection of the Stedelijk (Dutch for 'municipal') Museum includes works from leading lights of 19th- and 20th-century painting. Artists include Monet, Picasso and Chagall - as well as Pop Art from Warhol and Lichtenstein.
There are also abstracts by Mondrian and Kandinsky, a unique collection of 29 paintings by influential avant-garde painter Casimir Malevich, and a whole lot more. With a collection of 90,000 works of art in its 9,000m2 of exhibition space, there's sure to be something for everyone.
The terrace that opens onto Amsterdam's famous Museumplein is the perfect spot to relax after your museum visit, enjoy a slice of cake, and repeatedly say to your companions, "Yes, the art was beautiful, but what does it mean?".
