De Hallen

Studio Verwey

15 Sep - 18 Nov 2012

Five contemporary artists between studio and museum
15 September - 18 November 2012

From 15 September until 18 November De Hallen Haarlem will present Studio Verwey, named after Haarlem artist Kees Verwey. Frans Hals Museum | De Hallen Haarlem administers Verwey’s estate and regularly exhibits his work. The exhibition Studio Verwey researches the studio’s role for contemporary artists. Verwey worked mostly within the four walls of his studio, but what is the relationship that young artists have with their working space? Five artists who at one time or another received a Fellowship from the Kees Verwey Foundation at the Rijksakademie in Amsterdam will show their recent work: Ištvan Išt Huzjan, Tomoko Kawachi, Tala Madani, Derk Thijs and Sarah Verbeek. The exhibition focuses on how these artists from different nationalities and generations make their art in the year 2012. The exhibition is in keeping with De Hallen as a platform for young talent from home and abroad.
