'75 years of freedom in art '- City Museum Doetinchem

22 September 2020 - 28 March 2021

The importance of freedom in art is from great significance after the Second World War. Artists demanding their freedom and wanted change.
This exhibition, which is a collaboration between eight Dutch and eight
 German cities, is divided into four time zones. Starting with art just before and during the Second World War. Followed by the 50s - 60s with the art movements Zero and the Cobra. Figurative and expressive painting flourished in the 1970s-80s. And the last period, the 90s to the present, where freedom is not self-evident. Or has major consequences for climate change, our quality of life and.… the chance of contamination.

This exhibition tells the story why this art was created. And what functions does art have.
Each time period focuses on a number of artists who have had regional and national significance for that period, both German and Dutch.

All participating artists are Otto Pankok, Jo Spier, Cas Oorthuys, Maria Austria, Otto Andreas Schreiber, Hendrik Nicolaas Werkman, Philip Mechanicus, Armando, Corneille, Jan Kagie, Lucebert, Eugène Brands, Roelof Frankot, Jan Homan, Henk Peeters, Anton Heyboer , Eva Pankok, Karel Appel, Günther Uecker, Jan Henderikse, Ulay, Michael Wolf, Kars Tuinder, Kadir van Lohuizen, Pauline Nijenhuis, Kira Fröse and RoosArt.

Exhibition Korea Craft Designer Association, Zuid-Korea — 2018

Zuid-Korea is trots op zijn eigen ambachtelijke traditie, waaronder ook vele, textiele technieken. Tegelijkertijd is het een modern land, dat cultureel sterk in opkomst is. Ongetwijfeld herkenden de Koreanen iets in de werken van Nijenhuis, ambachtelijk én met een modern thema: de versnelling in onze maatschappij. Zuid-Korea staat open voor een culturele uitwisseling met andere landen, waardoor het mogelijk werd om werken in te zenden voor de internationale, digitale expositie van de Korea Craft Designer Associatie (KCDA), die wordt georganiseerd aan de prestigieuze Hanyang Universiteit in Seoul.
Bij de expositie verschijnt een fraai vormgegeven kleurencatalogus.

ENGLISCH:
South Korea is proud of its own craft tradition, including many textile techniques. At the same time, it is a modern country that is growing rapidly. Undoubtedly the Koreans recognized something in the works of Nijenhuis, traditional and with a modern theme: the acceleration in our society. South Korea is open to a cultural exchange with other countries, making it possible to submit works for the international digital exhibition of the Korea Craft Designer Association (KCDA), which is being organized at the prestigious Hanyang University in Seoul.
A beautifully designed color catalog will appear at the exhibition.

36 Textielkunstenaars in Galerie de Kapberg — 27 juni tot en met 8 juli

Opening door Wouter de Vries, hoofdredacteur van TXP (Textielplus) op zondag 1 juli, 15 uur.

Textiel als medium voor kunst maakte kort opgang als onderdeel van de experimenteerdrift van de jaren '60 en '70. Daarna verdween textielkunst niet alleen in Nederland, maar ook in andere delen van de wereld weer uit het zicht. Het werd te veel geassocieerd met hobbyende huisvrouwen.

Sinds kort is er echter in de kunst weer aandacht voor het maken, het ambacht en het materiaal. Daardoor is textiel als medium voor kunst al een paar jaar in opkomst. Het gaat de moderne textielkúnstenaar echter niet om het slaafs navolgen van het oude ambacht. Hij zet het ambacht naar zijn eigen hand. Daardoor ontstaan er voortbordurend op/met oude vaardigheden steeds nieuwe vormen. Het resultaat daarvan is te zien tijdens deze tentoonstelling.

De tentoonstelling laat werk zien van 36 Nederlandse textielkunstenaars, te weten: Alexandra Drenth, Amee Vlam, Anja van Dijk, Anke Land, Anna van de Weijer, Astrid Polman, Attje Oosterhuis, Choi Wong, Emilie ten Klei, Flox den Hartog Jager, Helene Derkx, Inge Witvers, Irma Frijlink, Jacqueline van Bergeijk, Jantine Hos en Hennesien van Walderveer, Jo Huijsman, José van Loon en Lia Stouten, Klara van Langevelde, Loes Klein Elhorst, Marga Lansink, Mariëlle Huijsmans, Marijke Leertouwer, Marijke van Welzen, Marijke van Oostrum, Marion Lappenschaar, Mino Wortel, Mique Huijbregts, Olga Prins, Pauline Nijenhuis, Petra Kooij, Riny Smits, Sary Maas, Sonja van der Burg en Willy Doreleijers.

ENGLISCH:
Opening by Wouter de Vries, editor in chief of TXP (Textielplus) on Sunday 1 July, 15 hours.

Textiles as a medium for art began as part of the experimental drive of the sixties and seventies. Then textile art disappeared from view not only in the Netherlands, but also in other parts of the world. It was too much associated with hobby housewives.

Recently, however, there has again been attention in art for making, craft and material. As a result, textile as a medium for art has been on the rise for a few years. The modern textile artist, however, is not concerned with slavishly following this old craft. He puts this craft to his own hand. As a result, new forms continually develop on / with old skills. The result can be seen during this exhibition.

The exhibition shows work by 36 Dutch textile artists, namely: Alexandra Drenth, Amee Vlam, Anja van Dijk, Anke Land, Anna van de Weijer, Astrid Polman, Attje Oosterhuis, Choi Wong, Emilie ten Klei, Flox den Hartog Jager, Helene Derkx, Inge Witvers, Irma Frijlink, Jacqueline van Bergeijk, Jantine Hos en Hennesien van Walderveer, Jo Huijsman, José van Loon en Lia Stouten, Klara van Langevelde, Loes Klein Elhorst, Marga Lansink, Mariëlle Huijsmans, Marijke Leertouwer, Marijke van Welzen, Marijke van Oostrum, Marion Lappenschaar, Mino Wortel, Mique Huijbregts, Olga Prins, Pauline Nijenhuis, Petra Kooij, Riny Smits, Sary Maas, Sonja van der Burg en Willy Doreleijers.
