The dizzying imagination of Piranesi

Kunsthal, Rotterdam

Exhibition

2019

The dizzying imagination of Piranesi | Kunsthal, Rotterdam | Exhibition | 2019

The Kunsthal is presenting over seventy large-format prints by Piranesi from the impressive graphic art collection of Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen. As an artist, Piranesi became known in the eighteenth century for his ‘Vedute di Roma’, an extensive series of etchings of impressive views of the ruins and monuments of Rome. In his famous series of prints featuring imaginary prisons, the ‘Carceri d’Invenzione’, Piranesi – who was originally an architect – expressed his spatial fantasies. Prints of rare quality are shown from both these series, as well as eight colossal books that highlight the dizzying imagination of Piranesi – as an artist, researcher and designer. This exhibition is part of a series of three exhibitions at the Kunsthal in the context of the city-wide project ‘Boijmans Next Door’.

Breathing Colour — Hella Jongerius

Breathing Colour — Hella Jongerius | Museum Boijmans van Beuningen, Rotterdam | Exhibition | 2018

Drawing on 15 years of colour research, designer Hella Jongerius presents a series of installations that deepen our understanding of colour. She has created a collection of specially designed objects that demonstrate how the experience of colour and form is affected by changing daylight throughout the day. In addition Hella Jongerius has selected together with artist Mathieu Meijers artworks from the collection of Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen.
The exhibition questions our perception of colour and reflects upon the history of colour research. Hella Jongerius: Breathing Colour is a statement about the strength, imperfection and versatility of colour as a reaction to the flatness of the colours produced by industry. Ultimately, Jongerius aims to pit the power of colour against the power of form.
