In our recent newsletter we mentioned that we would organize a couple of public lectures on contemporary art. These lectures will focus on big themes in art history in connection with artist we present at our gallery. We now have established the themes and dates.
Jeroen Chabot, dean of the Willem de Kooning Academy (WDKA Art Academy) in Rotterdam, will present the lectures. Each lecture will be scheduled twice.
If you are interested in one or more of these free lectures below, please subscribe beforehand via firstname.lastname@example.org
LECTURE 3: THE PERSONALITY OF THE ARTIST
Wednesday September 18th 19:30
So many myths exist about the personality of artists. Keisuke Matsuura tries to be invisible where his work is concerned.
We look at all sorts of types of artists and come to an understanding of the artist and his work.
LECTURE 4: REASON AND EMOTION
Wednesday November 6th 19:30
Reason and emotion are two mutually exclusive polarities that define the history of philosophy and art. Klaus Staudt has always tried to bridge reason and emotion. By using structure and psychology as layers superimposed on the perception of his work, he finds a way out of this classical dichotomy.
LECTURE 2: WHAT IS ART ABOUT?
Wednesday June 5th 19:30 - Saturday June 8th 15:00
Art, especially modern art, often seems to simple. A black square, a single stroke of paint, it defies all we thought we knew about mastership in art. Chen Ruo Bings' work is a case in point. Is there meaning in his work, while it looks so deceptively simple. Why is the meaning of art often so hard to understand?
LECTURE 1: TIME AND SPACE IN ART
Sunday April 28th 15:00
Time and Space in Art. Christian Megert uses mirrors in his work to create an unending space.
The notion of time and space in art communicates ideas on how men understood his world and values.
