The group exhibition Double Plus Good presents artworks that are the result of one-off collaborations between artists. The artists in this exhibition take the vulnerable step to open up their practice to other makers, and explore each other’s world of thinking through paper, films and installations. What drives artists to engage in occasional or long-term collaboration with other makers or thinkers?

Double Plus Good includes collaborations between teachers and (former) students, between lovers and loners, between different generations and artists with a shared history. Together they enter a conversation with each other in their work, challenge each other to take the next step or to delve deeper into their matter.

The exhibition is a follow-up to ‘Collaborations’, an exhibition that Aveline de Bruin, of the Collection de Bruin-Heijn, previously showed in the Portuguese Quetzal Art Center and is being further developed and curated with her, curator contemporary art Centraal Museum Laurie Cluitmans and artistic director of Nest Heske ten Cate.

Read the introduction Collaboration creates community‘ that Heske ten Cate wrote for the exhibition and her reflection on a period of intensive collaborations at Nest, as well as the essay ‘Nothing makes itself‘ by Laurie Cluitmans. Everything about the exhibition and the artists can be read here.

Collection de Bruin-Heijn

The collection of Cees and Inge de Bruin-Heijn grew into one of the largest private collections in the Netherlands. The De Bruin-Heijn collection is managed by their daughter Aveline de Bruin, and in 2016 the family opened their own exhibition space for contemporary art: Quetzal Art Center in Vidigueira, Portugal.
