Vive le cinéma! — Art and Film | Eye Filmmuseum Amsterdam | Exhibition | 2021
For this exhibition that marks the 75th anniversary of the Filmmuseum and the 50th International Film Festival Rotterdam (IFFR), Eye and the IFFR have selected five film directors from five continents as a way of celebrating the unlimited power and diversity of world cinema.
The filmmakers — Lucrecia Martel (South America), Nanouk Leopold (Europe), Lemohang Jeremiah Mosese (Africa), Carlos Reygadas (North America) and Jia Zhang-ke (Asia) — were invited to make a work for the exhibition that exploits the three-dimensional gallery space rather than the two-dimensional cinema screen. For some of them, it was the first time they had created a cinematographic installation that explores the boundaries of their work and of the art of film in general.
Black Album / White Cube
Black Album / White Cube | Kunsthal, Rotterdam | Exhibition | 2020
The worlds of visual art and pop music come together at the Kunsthal Rotterdam. From A$AP Rocky, Lady Gaga, and Britney Spears to Joy Division, Euromasters and The Beatles: this is the music that inspired the art in the exhibition ‘Black Album / White Cube’. Thirty five internationally renowned artists show works that have been significantly influenced by music. Over two hundred contemporary artworks have been brought together in the exhibition, including photographs by Wolfgang Tillmans and Anton Corbijn, video installations by Cyprien Gaillard and Arthur Jafa, and paintings by Albert Oehlen and Emil Schult. Divided into chapters such as ‘remixing and sampling’ or ‘original and copy’, the exhibition features countless exciting cross-overs.(copywright KunstHal)

The Nationalmuseum in Stockholm presents Hella Jongerius’s exhibition ‘Breathing Colour’, a visual installation that features the results of her longstanding research into colour, shape, light and materials.
On the borderline between art and design, it presents a visual examination of how colour and light interplay and change during all hours of the day. In forms of paper, textiles, ceramics, metal and plastics, designer Hella Jongerius displays her many years of artistic research into colour, light and materiality. Her study is deepened in the meeting of the works of art she has chosen from Nationalmuseum’s collections.
