Two exhibitions

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 13 dicembre 2009

Groningen until 11 April 2010, the Groninger Museum will present the first large-scale solo exhibition of the work of artist Folkert de Jong (Egmond aan Zee, 1972) in the Netherlands. The exhibition displays a large selection of sculptures, drawings that have not been shown previously, and new monumental work. The exhibition, which will be held in the Ploeg Pavilion, will display 150 works, including paintings, drawings, prints and figures by the Brücke members Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Erich Heckel, Karl Schmidt- Rottluff, Fritz Bleyl, Max Pechstein, Emil Nolde, Cuno Amiet and Otto Mueller. The basis of the collection and the foundation of the Brücke Museum was the donation of a large number of works by Karl Schmidt- Rottluff. Since then, the collection has been extended with works by the other Brücke members by means of purchases, donations and long-term loans. The artists’ group Brücke, founded in Dresden in 1905, is regarded right down to this day as one of the most important fundaments on which North European expressionism is founded.  The rapid, sketch-like forms and the expressive colours, in often-contrasting colour combinations, are typical of Brücke expressionism. Their favourite themes included townscapes, landscapes and the world of variety. In 1913 the group disbanded and the artists went their own way. In the thirties, the work of the members of De Brücke was classified by the Nation Socialist regime as being degenerate.  A catalogue with articles by Brücke experts such as Prof. Dr Magdalena Moeller and Christiane Remm, will appear to accompany the exhibition. It will be published by Hirmer Verlag, and will be Dutch-German.
Bernhard Willhelm & Jutta Kraus The Groninger Museum will present a major solo exhibition of the work of Bernhard Willhelm and Jutta Kraus (both, 1972) on the occasion of their tenth working anniversary. In the course of these ten years, Willhelm and Kraus have realized more than 30 collections. The exhibition will offer an extensive selection from these, with both men’s and women’s wear.  The exhibition has been made possible by support from the Stichting Fonds Kunst en Economie (Art and Economy Foundation), an initiative of VNO-NCW Noord. This project is partly funded by the European Union and the Samenwerkingsverband Noord- Nederland, EZ/Kompas (North-Netherlands Co-operative Enterprise) (Image: Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, ‘Artistin-Marcella’, 1910, Oil on canvas)
