30/3-12/6/2015: ARCHIPELAGO. THE REGION AS AN ART SPACE


ARCHIPELAGO

the region as an art space

 

30/3-12/6 /Provincie Maastricht

Opening: Friday 27 March 2015 at 6:00 PM

 

Open weekdays: 9:00 AM-6:00 PM (closed weekends and public holidays)

 

The Euroregio Meuse-Rhine* is a particularly fertile terrain for the visual arts (due especially to an abundance of schools, cultural associations, and museums covering all genres), even though as a region its identity remains vague and it has a decidedly uninviting name. The region’s inhabitants tend to remain grouped around their local towns, rather in the manner of fortresses. True to their role as pioneers, artists are often the ones to lower the drawbridge or take the first boat to the neighbouring island, especially if a different language is spoken there or if they greet one another in a strange way. And staying in the realm of metaphor, we can use another image to sum up the relationship artists have with their place of origin: the boomerang. They are quick to leave so they can conduct the experiments essential to their artistic career, but they come back regularly to get fresh ideas or to replenish it.

It is this dynamic that the exhibition The Archipelago sets out to illustrate. Exhibition jointly organised by Provincie Limburg and the SPACE Collection.

* which comprises the Dutch Province of Limburg, the Province of Liège, the Belgian Province of Limburg, and the Aachen region.
