MUST SEE IN 2019
For 2019, the Kunsthal has again put together a wonderful, high-contrast programme in collaboration with many partners from the Netherlands and abroad. Varying from contemporary art from the collection of Rattan Chadha in Trouble in Paradise. Collection Rattan Chadha to a voyage of discovery through different genres of science fiction in Science Fiction: A Journey into the Unknown
As part of Boijmans Next Door, a project organised because of the closure of Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen during its renovation, the Kunsthal will programme three exhibitions from the museum’s collection. First Picasso on Paper, subsequently the prints of Giovanni Battista Piranesi and finally landscape-themed paintings.
In collaboration with the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao, the Serralves Museum in Porto and the artist Joana Vasconcelos, we will present a major retrospective of Vasconcelos’s work during the summer. Her international reputation is rising fast, and we are very pleased that we can produce the exhibition I’m Your Mirror with such extremely prestigious partners.
We are also enormously looking forward to the HipHop that we are putting together in collaboration with Rotterdam based the HipHopHuis, guest curator Lee Stuart and a large number of other people from the international scene.
All you can Art continues. A profound collaboration between the Kunsthal Rotterdam and Instituto Buena Bista (IBB) Curaçao has become a permanent part of the cultural landscape of Rotterdam, after three succesful editions. This summer, under the inspiring leadership of artists David Bade and Tirzo Martha, AYCA returns to the Kunsthal and extends its range with a site of its own in Rotterdam-Zuid.
The showstopper to end the year will be the first retrospective on French creator Thierry Mugler in the exhibition Thierry Mugler: Couturissime, initiated, produced and circulated by the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, in collaboration with the Clarins Group and the Maison Mugler. It promises to become spectacular!
