Museum Voorlinden presents the key work ‘Zero point’ (2002) by artist Dave Meijer in the treasure room from 24 March.
449 painted, colorful panels covered the walls of the museum’s secret exhibition space. Meijer’s work consists of a play of colors, lines and shapes, inspired by what the artist is all about in his home province of Zeeland.
From April the 8th to August the 19th, the exhibition Bernard Heesen and the madness of the 19th century will be shown at the Rijksmuseum Twenthe in Enschede.
After high school Bernard Heesen studied architecture in Delft from 1977 until 1984. In 1984 he entered the world of glass blowing at De Oude Horn, a glass blowing factory which was established by his father Willem Heesen in 1977. After assisting his father for a while, Bernard Heesen made the desicion to continue working in glass art and his father Willem assigned the company to him. Nowadays, Heesen’s glassworks are leading in the world of glass art.
Our neighbours Museum Boijmans van Beuningen show their beautiful own collection during the exhibition ‘The collection as a time machine’.
Besides works of Mark Rothko, Rob Scholte, Donald Judd and Paul Cézanne, our artist Klaas Gubbels has been given a beautiful leading place within the museum.
