(Con)Temporary Museum Amsterdam.
Urban symbiosis of contemporary art
You are cordially invited for the (Con)Temporary Museum Amsterdam.
This imaginary museum engenders the parallel program of Art Amsterdam. The editions in 2006 and 2007 proved a success and again this year the floor plan of the Museum is the entire city. The halls are made up by prominent Amsterdam-based art institutes, like de Appel Arts Centre, De Ateliers, Foam, Kunstvlaai A.P.I., SMART Project Space, Stedelijk Museum CS and W139. Art Amsterdam is where the beat is.
Visitors are provided with a free passe-partout, a go-as-you-please ticket that gives access to all ‘halls’ of the (Con)Temporary Museum Amsterdam.
Each individual institute realises an extra programme that shows work by artists who are represented by galleries at Art Amsterdam, ephemeral installations, guided tours and video programmes.
The extended ‘Temporary Museum Guide’ gives detailed program information and a critical context with articles by among others Ann Demeester and Anneke Oele.
The (Con)Temporary Museum Amsterdam starts with a sparkling Opening Party at SMART Project Space, directly after the opening of Art Amsterdam on 7th of May. The exhibition ‘Field Work – part I’ on the perception of the landscape is open.
At Foam_Fotografiemuseum Amsterdam the German galery Marion Scharmann presents work of the young photographer Martina Sauter (1974). Sauter researches the ambivalent relationship between film and photography.
At the Stedelijk Museum Bureau Amsterdam Lucas Lenglet continues a series of installations exploring the ambiguity of ‘the architecture of safety’. This given is worked out by Lenglet in a stricktly personal idiom of sculptures, architectural settings and photography.
Huis Marseille shows an overview of the work of the artist and photographer Edwin Zwakman.
