SUMMER SHOW
Loes Koomen, Jan Willem Deiman and Tim Wunderink
group exhibition 
06 07 '19 / 10 08 '19 
Opening 06 07 '19 / 4 to 6 pm

Thin frames cast lined shadows on the white wall, colourful geometric forms seem to want to break out of their context and parts of inflatable boats and air mattresses carry your thoughts to the coolness of water. The abstract works of Loes Koomen, Jan Willem Deiman and Tim Wunderink waft through the gallery like a summer breeze.
SUMMER PROGRAMME
Friday July 12
ART, MUSIC & COCKTAILS
5 - 9 pm, the gallery is open from 12 pm

On this Friday evening we play summer music and serve cocktails inspired by the works shown in the gallery. When the sun is out, the garden will be open. More information will follow soon!

Friday July 19
FILM
Il deserto Rosso (1964) – Michelangelo Antonioni
8 - 10 pm, doors open at 7:30 pm

“In Il Deserto Rosso I wanted to change the face of reality, of water, of streets, of landscapes, to physically paint them.”
- Michelangelo Antonioni

Amidst smoking factories in the surroundings of Ravenna, we find a young woman - played by Monica Vitti - wandering in the industrial landscape of the 1960’s. Giuliana’s intensely green jacket comes up bright against the weathered concrete. Il deserto rosso (1964) was the first color film by Michelangelo Antonioni (1912-2007), the Italian modernist director. He drew inspiration from painters like Rothko and Pollock, who’s abstract expressionism freed color from objective context and made it the expressive subject in itself. Antonioni also took the brush by hand and manually painted every frame to intensify the colors. The expressive color fields reflect the state of mind of Giuliana and transform the industrial landscapes into a painting of abstract, odd beauty.

Language: Italian, subtitles: English. Maan Meelker, freelance writer, editor at Cineville and rMA Cultural analysis student, has selected the film and will also give a short introduction. Incl. break, drink & popcorn. RSVP before July 18: info@galeriebart.nl



Tuesday July 30

JAZZ CONCERT
TISOI Stef Joosten & Kika Sprangers
8 - 9:45 pm, doors open at 7:30 pm

TISOI is the initiative of bassist and composer Stef Joosten. TISOI stands for: "The Indefinite Shape Of Imagination". The idea for this project originated from Stef's urge to play his own compositions and at the same time seize the opportunity to meet inspiring musicians from both his own generation and the established order. For this concert he has invited saxophonist Kika Sprangers. TISOI will perform lyrical contemporary jazz, part of which is improvised. Stef will also compose a piece inspired by the works from the exhibition. RSVP before July 29: info@galeriebart.nl

To make this summer breeze blow a little harder, we have put together a programme inspired by the theme of the exhibition. You can join free of charge. 


Short Dips: still from Saturday Symphony, by Iris Frankhuizen.

Friday July 26

SHORT DIPS
Animated short films
8 - 9:45 pm, doors open at 7:30 pm

Dip into a pool of animated short films, alternately themed around the exhibition and the sweatiest season of the year. Just long enough to pull you under but short enough to keep it fresh. Curated and presented by animation director, VJ and illustrator Mirjam Debets. Subtitles: English. Incl. drink & popcorn.
Mirjam explains: "Without getting too technical: animation usually consists of at least 8 -but usually 12- unique frames per second, which makes its creation a long, labour-intensive and sometimes even tedious process. Hence I dare say each animator shares either a very intense love or a very productive hate for the material of choice. Which makes animation in my opinion the most interesting, diverse and expressive medium in contemporary art."
RSVP before August the 1st: info@galeriebart.nl

Saturday August 10

I DON’T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT ART, BUT STILL WANT TO ASK SOMETHING
Merel van den Nieuwenhof in conversation with the three artists and the gallery
4 - 5 pm, closing drinks from 5 pm
The gallery is open from 12 pm

We notice that the visitors in our gallery and our art fair presentations often find it a bit intimidating to ask us questions. The idea prevails that you have to be an expert before you can understand and appreciate art. That is why we want to close the exhibition with a talk about these topics. During this hour, the artists are asked the questions that our visitors and clients have asked with hesitation over the years, such as: "What is the purpose of this work of art?" "What does a gallery manager actually do?” “Why is this art work priced like this?” The audience is also allowed to ask all the questions they did not dare to ask before, to both the exhibiting artists and the gallery team. Merel van den Nieuwenhof, curator and editor-in-chief of Palet magazine, will be our host this afternoon. RSVP before August 9: info@galeriebart.

This event will be Dutch spoken. We apologise to our non-Dutch speakers for any inconvenience.

Choki Lindberg
solo exhibition
25 05 '19 / 29 06 '19  

The photographs of Choki Lindberg (b. 1979, Copenhagen) evoke a sense of recognition. A perfectly ordinary setting placed outside of ordinary reality. When you look a little longer at these photographs, something about them seems a little odd. Then you realize that these are not real interiors of existing homes. Lindberg builds small-scale sets that she photographs. This gives her work a surrealistic touch. The combination of the medium of photography and meticulously constructed settings gives a feeling of authenticity. We implicitly believe in the existence of these places, after which our imagination fills in the stories that go with them.

AROUND THE CORNER
Jeppe Lauge & Lawrence James Bailey
duo exhibition
06 04 '19 / 18 05 '19

18 05 '19 / 4 - 5 pm: Closing drinks
You are kindly invited to take a last look at AROUND THE CORNER, to ask Jeppe and Lawrence all you would like to know about their work, and to join us for drinks!

Both Jeppe Lauge (1980, DK) and Lawrence James Bailey (1976, UK) use photographic material as the starting point of their practice. Jeppe manipulates his photos to construct new landscapes in digital collages on his computer. Lawrence uses these images to make new representations as well. When Jeppe sees a landscape, he sees a complex picture, a shaped space to which we added layers over time. Guided by his focus on the border area where the city and the surrounding landscape meet, Lawrence sees this terrain as the new wilderness, left alone in an age where almost every landscape is touched by us. In the exhibition AROUND THE CORNER the two artists show the results of their wanderings, Jeppe in his paintings and Lawrence in his textile works.

More about Jeppe Lauge and more about Lawrence James Bailey.
A Cloud Collision Walkthrough
Gerard Koek & Toni van Tiel
duo exhibition 
16 02 '19 / 30 05 '19 

Closing drinks 30 03 '19 / 16:00 - 18:00

You could call 'A Cloud Collision Walkthrough' an exhibition of sculptures. And yet there is only one freestanding sculpture to be seen. Supported by a table-like plinth, Gerard Koek’s (1954, NL) sculpture ‘Beholder’s Eye’ with its brightly-coloured branches seems to be rising up out of the floor. Or is it sinking into it? Toni van Tiel (1979, NL) is a sculptor on paper. In his drawings, he creates monuments, fountains, and roundabouts: sculptures in imaginary public spaces. Toni feels no need to realize these sculptures in three dimensions. They exist on paper, and the viewer’s imagination does the rest.

Go Figure!
Aldwin van de Ven, Casper Verborg, Jerry Kowalsky & Maria Britze
group exhibition
15 12 '18 / 09 02 '19

Through the centuries, the portrait has had many appearances, ranging from naive to lifelike and from idealized to abstract. The paintings and sculptures in this exhibition are portraits in the broadest sense of the word. Those portrayed are not necessarily recognizable as a specific person, but are defined by a more universal characterization. The four exhibitors join a centuries-long portrait tradition, which at the same time has been released almost completely. The works come together in a contemporary portrait gallery, as 'portraits of our time'.

Tamara Muller - Distraction
solo exhibition
27 10 '18 / 08 12 '18

Do the big themes and extraordinary events in life distract us from the commonplace, or is it the other way around? This question is expressed in the newest series by Tamara Muller, through a multiplicity of visual distractions for the viewer. The characters themselves are also distracted, they look up in surprise. But don’t let yourself be fooled: their direct gazes distract you from what it’s really all about. As for exactly what that is, Tamara leaves it up in the air.

Frode Bolhuis - A Contagious Affair
solo exhibition
08 09 '18 / 20 10 '18

The figures by Frode Bolhuis have a typical ‘Bolhuis look’: a characteristic facial expression and a rather awkward posture, but with a certain softness about them. Whereas their creator drew inspiration for his earlier work from the Middle Ages, this is now the end of the 19th century. The nature of Bolhuis’s sculptures has shifted from tranquil to more flamboyant and expressive.

Kuno Grommers - Orientation
solo exhibition
07 07 '18 / 18 08 '18

Dutch photographer Kuno Grommers (1946) captures the spatial dynamics of static phenomena with his camera. Subject to his work are abstract, geometrical shapes and large color fields in gravity-defying installations. The calculative, illusive compositions rest on Grommers's innovative use of two important photographical fundaments: light and darkness. Corresponding to his photography, a selection of his three-dimensional oeuvre is on display in this solo exhibition as well. These assemblages, a blend of paint and canvas in a sculptural manner, introduce different approaches to the mechanics of perspective.

Loes Koomen - Room To Move
solo exhibition
30 06 '18 / 21 07 '18

In Loes Koomen’s abstract paintings, it’s all about finding the proper balance between seemingly contradictory elements: sharp combinations of colours that both repel and attract each other, and parts that seem to want to escape (or are they actually seeking each other out?). Room To Move is opening in Salon Bart, located on the first floor, where by way of experiment Galerie Bart presents the works in a domestic setting.

This exhibition is a collaboration with the artist and Klerkx International Art Management.
Femke Dekkers - Stages
solo exhibition
19 05 '18 / 30 06 '18

In the field of tension between static architecture and picturesque perspective, Dutch photographer Femke Dekkers (1980) captures the space in which sculpture and painting merge together. Femke turns her environment into a stage, intervening on perspective with her camera. This makes you wonder: what is actual space and what is optical illusion? Her current solo exhibition 'Stages' is an overview of 2011 to date, displaying work from recent years alongside material from her archive: looking back provides new insights into various stages of her work.

Stefan Kasper - solo
De gouden dood of de gladiolen
31 03 '18 / 12 05 '18

Opening: Saturday March the 31st 16:00-18:00

In glittery portraits, carefully drawn skeletons, flowers and hidden jokes we find Stefan Kasper’s signature style: a colourful serenade and a playful wink towards the grand masters of the western art tradition. Vanitas symbols form recognizable landmarks within his extravagant, imaginative drawings on paper, cardboard and leftover material. His works are multi-layered, both in a material and a conceptual sense.

Seoul Sessions
Jisan Ahn and Raymond Lemstra
Duo exhibition

`Seoul Sessions`
Between 10 February and 24 March, Galerie Bart is showing ‘Seoul Sessions’: a duo exhibition with the work of Jisan Ahn (b. 1979, KR) and Raymond Lemstra (b. 1978, NL). Both artists studied in Groningen and currently live in Seoul. Each of them has known what it is like to be a newcomer, an outsider.

After coming to the Netherlands, Ahn realized that his prior focus on Korean political subjects was not relevant everywhere in the world. He began looking for new, more general subjects. A major source of inspiration for his newest series is Korean commercials from the 1970s. These were not slick marketing campaigns but had a naïve quality about them. They were direct, without any hidden agenda. Ahn places this old-fashioned visual idiom in today’s age by eliminating all references to the original context. As a result, the image itself takes centre stage, allowing room for a more universal meaning.

Lemstra has also had to deal with being ‘different’. After moving to Seoul in 2016, he had the tendency to shut himself up in his studio because of the language barrier and the great differences in social conventions. In order to nevertheless get a grip on the alienating and overwhelming city, he started collecting the many posters and stickers spread throughout the streetscape. This ‘skin of the city’ forms the background for his imagined portraits, which are painted in a less polished and flawless manner than the figures he made before living in South Korea. They have a certain vulnerability, perhaps reflecting their maker’s state of mind.

Both of the artists hold up a mirror to themselves, but also to us. Who am I, versus the other? How do I look at the other; how does the other look at me? Who were we in the past, versus how we are in the present? Topical and universal questions that can be posed time and again.
