Collection Visit: AkzoNobel Art Collection

Thu 19:00 · Amsterdam · Collection Visit

Please note this event is in Dutch. If you are interested in attending, please click ‘More info’ to find all details in Dutch.

Op donderdagavond 1 oktober brengen we een bezoek aan de bedrijfscollectie van AkzoNobel, waar de kleurrijke tentoonstelling ‘Common Ground 2: Connect in Color’ te zien is. We starten met een introductie over de collectie en het verzamelbeleid door Hester Alberdingk Thijm, directeur van de AkzoNobel Art Foundation. Vervolgens krijgen we een guided tour langs de collectie, waar we dieper ingaan op verschillende werken uit de collectie.

SPEERPUNTEN COLLECTIEBELEID
De AkzoNobel Kunstcollectie bevat hedendaagse kunstwerken uit verschillende disciplines van opkomende kunstenaars en jong talent. De collectie is opgebouwd op basis van thema's als 'Kleur en Onderzoek', 'Individu en Samenleving' en 'Ruimte'. Hoewel deze thema's niet absoluut zijn - elk werk is uniek en autonoom - maakt de AkzoNobel Art Foundation gebruik van deze thema's om de collectie te ordenen. Dit resulteert in een verzameling waarin de kunstwerken een verbinding met elkaar aangaan en met hun omgeving.

OVER DE AKZO NOBEL ART SPACE
AkzoNobel verzamelt en toont sinds 1996 kunst van internationaal gerenommeerde kunstenaars en jong talent. Sinds 2016 heeft de AkzoNobel Art Foundation de Art Space; een publiek toegankelijke ruimte voor kunst.De AkzoNobel Kunstcollectie dient als bron van innovatie en creatieve reflectie en als expressie van de maatschappelijke, culturele en sociale verantwoordelijkheid van AkzoNobel. De AkzoNobel Art Foundation creëert een stimulerende werkomgeving.

De primaire taak van de AkzoNobel Art Foundation is het beheren en behouden van ons cultureel erfgoed voor toekomstige generaties. Kunst weerspiegelt wie wij zijn – als samenleving, als individu en als bedrijf.

Collection Visit: Frits Bergsma in Nieuw Dakota

Fri 17:30 · Amsterdam · Collection Visit ·

On Friday October 9 we visit Nieuw Dakota, where several works of the private collection of Frits Bergsma are on show.

In the exhibition 'Sound and Fury' one video and four sound art works from the collection of collector Frits Bergsma are shown. In an exhibition concept by Jozef Hey (BeamSysytems) a selection of his recently acquired sound art works is now on display. The primacy of sound, language and the spoken word runs like a thread through the exhibition. 

On display is work by six young artists, who all followed their (master's) education at academies in Amsterdam and who are now also recognized in the international art world: Jacob Dwyer, Sophie Serber, Richard John Jones, Smari Robertsson, Nathan Azhderian and Nora Turato. 

Tanja Karreman (director Nieuw Dakota) welcomes us and explains how this exhibition fits into the program of Nieuw Dakota. Frits Bergsma will take us on a guided tour of the works on display and tells us more about his collection.

Studio Visit: Koen Doodeman

Sat 13:00 · Amsterdam · Studio Visit ·

On Saturday, October 31 we visit the studio of Koen Doodeman, a versatile artist whose work is know for its tactility.

Tactility is a term that applies to the work of Koen Doodeman, who transports textiles to the canvas, assembling them into handwoven acrylics on cotton and patchworks. Shifting between textile and painting, traditions intersect like the image does between the tangible surface and the pictorial space.

Koen Doodeman treats patterns as an historically determined given that evolves continuously, and as autonomous forms, removed from their context. He transports textile patterns, drawn from various sources, to the canvas plane. Here, Doodeman often combines several patterns and creates a new context within the changing medium. Here, he puts the pattern’s evolution on hold.

A pattern consists of a cell and its recurrence. It therefore has the potential of endless repetition. Because of repetition in the production process Doodeman can step away from the forms and study them while he is creating them. Moreover, this distance enables him to zoom in on detail and simultaneously use it as reference point for the bigger picture.

Koen Doodeman is represented by Gerhard Hofland Gallery.
