Mix Match Museum
April 18th, 2015 - August 30th, 2015The exhibition Mix Match Museum is the result of the online platform of the same name, on which the public, together with curators from six museums, compile exhibitions from six collections. All the Mix Match Museum exhibitions will open during the Museum Week (18-24 April) at the participating museums: Amsterdam Museum, the Groninger Museum, the Kröller-Müller Museum, Museum Boerhaave in Leiden, Museum TwentseWelle in Enschede and the Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven.
From 10 October 2014 to 10 January 2015, everyone is free to browse the collections at www.mixmatchmuseum.nl. With the theme ‘fascination for the modern’, curators from these museums have drawn up a shortlist of 300 objects, from which the public is invited to assemble a mini expo that they would like to see. The only condition: there has to be a good story behind the selection.
Mix Match Museum has been made possible with the support of Stichting DOEN.
Van Gogh & Co. Criss-crossing the collection
April 25th, 2015 - September 27th, 2015On 29 July 2015 it will be exactly 125 years since Vincent van Gogh died. The Van Gogh Europe Foundation, a collaboration of around 30 organisations is seizing this opportunity to honour the Dutch artists under the theme ‘125 years of inspiration’. Activities will be organised throughout the year in various towns in the Netherlands, Belgium, France and England that featured in the life and work of the artist.
The exhibition Van Gogh & Co, at the Kröller-Müller, will concentrate on the traditional genres at the end of the 19th century: still life, nature, cityscape and the human figure. Works by Vincent van Gogh - more than 50 in total including paintings and drawings - from various periods will be combined with those of his contemporaries from the museum’s own collection. Visitors will have the chance to draw parallels and discover how Van Gogh dealt with the various genres.
