Armando: seen through a friend’s eyes

A personal insight into the life and work of a multi-faceted artist

Armando (1929-2018) is one of the most significant Dutch artists of the past hundred years. His powerful, often monumental paintings and sculptures are about guilt and innocence, perpetrators and victims, and about good and particularly about evil. However, Armando was more than just a painter and sculptor. He was also a theatre and TV producer, poet, journalist, violinist and friend. The exhibition Armando: door de ogen van een vriend (Armando: seen through a friend’s eyes) in museum van Bommel van Dam gives a personal insight into the life and works of this multi-faceted artist. This is a retrospective exhibition interwoven with conversations between Armando and his lifelong friend Cherry Duyns (1944). Armando: door de ogen van een vriend runs from 18 March until 3 September 2023.

Femina Ludens

The ‘playing woman’

With her exhibition Femina Ludens, the video and performance artist Kitty Maria (NL, 1992) presents her first solo museum exhibition. In recent years, this talented artist has been living and working in Amsterdam but she has her roots in the town of Ottersum in Limburg province. In her art she critically and sometimes humorously explores automation in the workplace. How does replacing human labour with machines or computers affect people and their surroundings? Through videos, performances, sculptures and installations, Kitty Maria claims space for experimentation, play and feminism in environments that are usually driven by commercial considerations. The exhibition Femina Ludens takes place from 18 March to 2 July 2023.
