Schilderkunst OP DRIFT (Painting ADRIFT). Hadassah Emmerich, Lizan Freijsen, Gijs Frieling, Christie van der Haak, Mark Kent

The exhibition entitled Schilderkunst OP DRIFT is as exuberant as it is expansive. It features five artists who give free rein to the art of painting. In this case, it is painting XXL, which cannot be confined within any frame. Almost all the work has been placed directly on the wall.

In the autumn of 2003, Henri Jacobs (Zandoerle, NL, 1957) gave his students at the Royal Academy of Fine Art in The Hague the instruction to draw – every day – something that moved them, something they saw or thought. Do it quickly and keep it small, he recommended. He also applied this simple advice to himself. On 11 December 2003 he created his first Journaaltekening (Journal drawing).

‘The exhibition in the Stedelijk Museum Schiedam is one we all eagerly await.’

With the exhibition entitled Ik hou van Holland. Nederlandse kunst na 1945 (I Love Holland. Dutch post-war art), the Stedelijk Museum Schiedam will present a comprehensive overview of post-war Dutch art. An overview of this quality, magnitude and depth has never been shown in the Netherlands. It displays the developments in Dutch contemporary art, and links these to developments in society.
