Bokma Museum of Art7 Mar – 12 Apr 2009 / Exhibition@Nest
Curated by Mariëlle Buitendijk
Nest is a contemporary artist-initiative with a 400 m2 large exhibion space.
Shows at Nest focus on specific themes which are being investigated through the work of local, national and international artists.
Nest projects not only look at the artist and his or her work but also pay attention to the role of the artist and artwork within its social and functional context within society.
A subprogram of Nest called Nestarchy looks for more experimental ways to deal with presentation and collaboration. In One Nest Stands Artists and curators get the chance to visualise their own shows and projects for the duration of one night.
Hans Theys is asked to do a talk on Marcel Broodthaers, especially on his ‘Musee d’Art Modern’ and how this adressed the role between artist and museum.
Marja Bosma (curator Centraal Museum Utrecht) hosts a talk on the work of Thomas Huber and the relationship between the artist and the curator in his work.
