The Here for Now, Then and There research log series will cover a range of public events. Firstly, under the working title Looking at Art through Theory, a series of topical conversations with leading thinkers is scheduled to take place at the Stedelijk in the Spring of 2022, insights from which may inform a larger public program in the Fall. These conversations will seek new perspectives on art via cultural analysis, material culture, and heritage studies. They will take the form of talks recorded as (video) podcasts in the exhibition rooms of the Stedelijk Museum collection presentations, and published online here on Stedelijk Studies.
In the Fall of 2022, a discursive project encompassing talks, lecture performances, and other forms of knowledge exchange (working title) will be organized in a joint curatorial process involving the Kunstinstituut Melly (with Vivian Ziherl) and Metropolis M (with Domeniek Ruyters). A series of gatherings will take place in the same period (Sept-Dec) in Amsterdam and Rotterdam.
The Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam anticipates mounting an art and design exhibition titled Municipal Art Acquisitions (working title) in late 2022, co-curated with Amanda Pinatih. The projects from which the exhibitions are to be sourced will be proposed to the director and curatorial team, and a selection will be acquired for the museum’s collection.
