Next to my art practice I work as a curator/art historian. My main focus is on contemporary drawing. 

 I curated more than 30 group and solo exhibitions for art institutions, from museums to artitst intiatives. The last six years I was artistic director and curator for Drawing Centre Diepenheim. See a small selection of my recent curator portfolio below.  

Becoming Numerous

Asbjørn Skou

Becoming Numerous was the first major solo in the Netherlands of Danish artist and virtuoso draftsman Asbjørn Skou. With a multitude of drawings on both paper and wall, Skou transformed the Drawing Centre into a complex ‘reading room’ in which multi-interpretable narratives could be discovered.

Embodied Lines

Uli Kürner (D/NL)  Liesje van den Berk (NL) Nicole Wendel (D) Katrina Brown (UK)

The experience of the physical body was the focal point of the group exhibition Embodied Lines. How can a physical action or physical sensation be transformed into and communicated by an image? This is the question the four participants address, each from their own different practices. All explore the body through drawing and vice versa. A dance, walk, or gesture can by the jumping-off point for a performance with graphite, a spatial interplay of lines or somatic drawing.

J’essaye de me reconstruire 

Ronny Delrue

 

The exhibition ‘J’essaye de me reconstruire’ presents a selection of work by Ronny Delrue. Innumerable sketches, notes, doodles, paintings, obsessively detailed drawings and manipulated or drawn-on photos form a ceaseless flow of thoughts in which Delrue reflects both on personal experiences and contemporary social themes. In this sense, the exhibition can be considered a total installation that reveals how Delrue incorporates and explores drawing in his artistic practice.

Streams of Consciousness

Joyce ter Weele (NL)  Bente Wilms (NL) William Ludwig Lutgens (BE) Erwin Keustermans (BE), Stefan Kasper (NL), Riette Wanders (NL)

De tentoonstelling ‘Streams of Consciousness’ legt een relatie met de huidige maatschappij waarin onze zintuigen dagelijks worden blootgesteld aan een oneindige stroom van indrukken en informatie. Middels beeld, muziek en tekst worden ‘bewustzijnsstromen’ soms letterlijk op onze schermen gestreamd. Het begrip stream of consciousness vindt zijn oorsprong in zowel de psychologie als de literatuur en refereert aan de vaak onlogische en grillige toestand van een metaal landschap waarin observaties, herinneringen en gedachtes als een onafgebroken stroom worden ervaren.

Het Nieuwe Bouwen

Jantien Jongsma

 

The solo exhibition Het Nieuwe Bouwen by Jantien Jongsma features her most recent work, works on paper that range from the painterly – composed of different materials such as gouache and crayon – to meticulously detailed black and white pencil drawings. Especially for this exhibition, Jongsma created space-filling murals on which her individual drawings are grouped. This has resulted in a new work, that also doubles as an overview of her current artistic practice.

In this solo exhibition Marisa Rappard intuitively explores what is is to be human in a world of rapidly changing technology. Through drawing, she investigates how digital phenomena such as filtered news feeds, big data and fake news impact our everyday lives.
