Soon Gallery & Collection Visit

Sun 15:00 · Antwerp · Guided Tour & Collection Visit ·

In June, we will visit a unique duplex in which the private and gallery space of one of our members converges.

Doris Vanistendael and her partner Bram Van Cauter, an architect, reside in a stunning apartment in Antwerp. This apartment is housed in a brutalist building that was designed by Léon Stynen and Paul De Meyer, with the living area remodeled by Van Cauter. The apartment offers a stunning view of the city. Doris and Bram consider it a challenge to collect art on a modest budget. Nonetheless, their collection is already quite impressive, featuring works by Luis Xertu, Beni Bischof, Charline Tyberghein, Tuukka Tammisaari, Adelheid De Witte, Bieke Buckinx, Ellen Pil, Middernacht & Alexander, Ritsart Gobyn and Stéphanie Baechler.

Additionally, we will visit the ongoing exhibition at Soon Gallery, located within the same building. This exhibition showcases the work of young Antwerp-based artist Flo Bastiaensen, whose paintings are inspired by the banality of everyday life in all its complexity. The surrounding architecture in which the work is presented is also noteworthy: the duplex that houses the gallery dates back to 1972 and remains completely in its original state.

The Graduation Show of the Rietveld Academie is an annual highlight on the art calendar. We start our visit with a welcome by the Academy, visit the presentations of several graduates from different departments and close off with a drink in the Academy’s outside bar.

The newest generation of artists presents their graduation work there, which makes it a fantastic opportunity to discover new talents and network with other art enthusiasts. Graduation shows are the place to spot various layers of the art world who are all in search of the newest talents: from curators and directors to collectors, gallerists and other artists.

Masterclass: De Kunstmarkt

Sat 13:30 · Dordrecht · Masterclass & Tour

Please note this event will be in Dutch. Click the button below to read more about this program in Dutch.

Tijdens deze masterclass over de kunstmarkt die plaatsvindt in Het Dordrechts Museum leer je alles over de mechanismen die spelen in de kunstmarkt. Hoe verhouden de kunstenaars, galeries en verzamelaars zich tot elkaar? Waarom levert het ene kunstwerk miljoenen op, terwijl veel andere kunst ongezien blijft? En hoe koop je topstukken met een kleine portemonnee? Tijdens het programma bezoeken we eerst met een doorgewinterde museum-gids de tentoonstelling Kunst voor de Kost, waarna de masterclass zal plaatsvinden. Laat de indrukken van de tentoonstellingen op je inwerken en leer vervolgens meer over de verborgen gebruiken en ongeschreven regels van de kunstmarkt. Dit is programma is inclusief een kopje koffie of thee.

Studio Visit: Joana Schneider

Wed 19:00 · Amsterdam · Studio Visit ·

This evening we are invited to the studio of German artist Joana Schneider, who has been residing in the Netherlands for several years. Sustainability lies at the core of her intuitive practice. Schneider primarily works with recycled materials, including yarn made from rough fishing rope.

She aims to keep her ecological footprint as small as possible, also taking into account the transportation of her often large-scale installations. Schneider's work exudes a deep appreciation for traditional craftsmanship and creativity. She also subtly challenges gender norms, for example, by combining so-called “female” materials (textile) with physically demanding “male” crafts. Additionally, Schneider has been experimenting with the use of special machines. Her work has been exhibited at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam and the Stedelijk Museum Schiedam and various international art fairs, and the artist is represented by Rademakers Gallery.
