20:45 – 21:00 Official opening by Heske ten Cate, Laurie Cluitmans and Aveline de Bruin.
Due to the nice weather we’ll be serving drinks outside. Unfortunately it is not allowed to take drinks into the exhibition space this night.
This group exhibition 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. Double Plus Good features John Baldessari & Matt Mullican, Sara Blokland & Jaya Pelupessy, Louise Bourgeois & Tracey Emin, Aukje Dekker, Lucile Desamory & Lucy McKenzie, Rodrigo Hernández & Rita Ponce de Léon, Jon Kessler & Mika Rottenberg and Philippe Parreno & Rirkrit Tiravanija.
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 Laurie Cluitmans and artistic director of Nest Heske ten Cate.
