Engage, Exchange

DNB's art collection is not only of benefit to its employees, but also to visitors, in inspiring and encouraging a dialogue about the various subjects represented by the works of art. These engaged works revolve around artistic production that engages in a broad range of social, political, historical or economic events, actors or systems.

We have combined works from three Rijksakademie residents, Wu Chi-Yu, Mahmoud Bakhshi and Sam Samiee, with a selection from our existing collection, including works from former Rijksakademie residents. This triggers a dialogue about the events, latent, ongoing or current, that inspire the artists and transpire in their works. Furthermore, this blend of works puts the collection in a new and fresh perspective and contributes to its recontextualisation. Art as a vehicle to convey a message and raise awareness of important issues will be the foundation of the exhibition.

Participating artists: Ronald Ophuis, Tjebbe Beekman, Mounir Fatmi,Aline Thomassen, Chiyu Wu, Sam Samiee, Mahmoud Bakhshi.

Curated by Corine van Emmerik
