Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen

With the XL collection, British artist Anne Hardy and new work by Joost Conijn

Major Art, the XL collection from the fifties onwards
XL-sized works can be seen from 10 February in the museum’s large halls. Guest conservator Carel Blotkamp has made a varied selection from the biggest works of Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen including Driftwood circle by Richard Long, Notung by Anselm Kiefer and D’red Dwarf, B’lack Hole, 2010 by Jim Shaw. The enormous works, sometimes some 5 metres high and 6 metres wide, have been made from the fifties onwards. They are not displayed very often because of their large size and there was no space for them in The collection as time machine. But that will soon change with the Major Art exhibition – The XL collection from the fifties onwards.

Sensory Spaces 13, nothing is what it seems
British artist Anne Hardy makes large-scale installations where objects, light, colour and sound come together. She’s making a new installation in which all parts seem to have taken on a life of their own for Sensory Spaces 13 in Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen. Visitors are invited to enter this ‘living being’ and to experience how the space slowly changes. Official opening: Saturday 10 Feb.

New work by Joost Conijn, Image of a refugee camp
A new work by Joost Conijn can be seen in the Serrazaal of Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen. Joost Conijn crawled unseen through a hole in a fence of a forgotten Greek refugee camp. He stayed in the settlement with the inhabitants and filmed them. Official opening: Saturday 10 Feb.
