A reallly fantastic couple of days visiting galleries in Amsterdam with a strong eye on the curation of photography and video installations:
Huis Marseille – Dancing Light / Let it move you
Foam – ARAKI Ojo Shashu – Photography for the Afterlife: Alluring Hell gives a distinct reflection on the oeuvre of the Japanese photographer Nobuyoshi Araki (Tokyo, 1940). The extensive exhibition comprises both his notorious early work, as well as his very recent series that have never been shown in the Netherlands before – A Family Portrayed – Van Loon in Foam.
Rembrandts Haus – awesome!
Rijks Museum – Dutch still life, vanitas and 17th/18th century objects – a revelation
Stedelijk Museum – awesome exhibition ‘On the move – story-telling in contemporary photography and graphic design. Also collections.
Photos and reflections to follow
