The first retrospective exhibition of Pii Daenen
The Dutch artist and designer Pii Daenen (Steyl, 1950) has been producing installations, videos, photos, performances, drawings and prints since the 1970s. Through his work, he explores our interaction with human needs such as food, sex, respect, recognition, wisdom and love. Pii believes that those needs are directly intertwined with stories and ideas from a specific culture. The artist addresses those stories and ideas and puts his own spin on them. By doing so, he hopes to inspire others to look beyond their comfort zone. The result is an extensive visual encyclopaedia of the human existence.
Pii-Files 505 gives the first ever extensive overview of Pii’s oeuvre and provides an inspiring view of the life and work of a compelling and captivating artist. Visit the exhibition from 29 March to 28 August 2022 and lose yourself in Pii’s unique and idiosyncratic universe.
Art and design for a vital region
Art goes much further than exhibitions, guided tours and activities in a museum. Art is everywhere! It is also on the street, in nature, at schools and in companies. That is why museum van Bommel van Dam works on various social art projects within and beyond our museum walls.
With the Re-think Re-act project, we respond to the health of the Limburg population who are far behind the national average in that regard. In collaboration with artists and designers, in 2019 the museum started six research and change processes concerning positive health and nutrition. Together with local residents, schools, organisations and partners, we hope this will trigger a new movement.
Is the result of thinking inside-out also the new approach to responding outside-in? Step inside and examine your vital health. You can visit Re-think Re-act from 18 June to 28 August 2022.
MELLE – Painter of a Different Reality
A walk through the oeuvre of ‘The Amsterdam Jeroen Bosch’
The Amsterdam Melle Oldeboerrigter (1908-1976) is one of the most enigmatic painters of the 20th century. Not only do his paintings contain alienating scenes, but he did not want to be pigeonholed as an artist either. Yet, he who is elusive runs the risk of remaining misunderstood. With the major retrospective exhibition MELLE – Painter of a Different Reality this autumn, museum van Bommel van Dam in Venlo is bringing the wonderous world of the somewhat forgotten artist back into the spotlight.
MELLE – Painter of a Different Reality has been compiled by guest curator Eliane Odding and can be seen in museum van Bommel van Dam in Venlo from 18 September 2022 to 26 February 2023.
