GERDA KRUIMER ⎪ EXHIBITIONS
KUNST = EEN VEELKOPPIGE DRAAK
KCB 70-year anniversary, Museum Kranenburgh, Bergen (NL)
As curator, I created the exhibition concept and layout for all museum rooms based on the title of the exhibition “Art is a many-headed Dragon”. The title is a quote by visual artist/writer Lucebert.
The layout for the hundreds of artworks by ±150 artists was made by having the participating artists choose a quote from an artist who was/is connected to the Bergen artist centre. A quote that is related to their own work. The sixteen chosen (parts of) quotes were displayed high on the wall in the exhibition as room texts. This created a fascinating arrangement of artworks interconnected by the respective chosen quote.
I was a member of the exhibition committee for the selection of the artworks, a member of the symposium committee and my work was represented in the exhibition.
