‘BUILDING UP AN EXHIBITION’

In conversation with Marnix van Boetzelaer

Is the exhibition an autonomous instrument for showing and sharing art? Or is it rather a dependent and “prepaid” device? Or does it offer a subjective and personal reading of the artwork?

A group of artists, currently following the master Fine Art at AKV St. Joost, are getting together with curator Marnix van Boetzelaer in De Slang, Amsterdam. During this meeting they will create a dialogue about the function of the exhibition and discuss questions they share in common.

Reflecting on these questions, they are trying to gather a deeper understanding of the power of displaying work and the purpose of an exhibition. For this evening, the intention is to start from questions, doubts and possibilities to think, instead of bringing about a statement. Nevertheless, they might find some answers in the process.

During the opening event, the exhibition will be built up in combination with discussions between students and curator Marnix van Boetzelaer. Together they will make decisions, selections and investigate possible ways of presenting their work, striving towards a final result, which will be presented during the weekend.
