De Gevelexpositie

Concert posters make place for a permanent art exhibition 

Active as co-curator

In the first month of the pandamic Paradiso started exhibitting work of local artists. We called it De Gevelexpositie (facade exposition). What usually functioned as an advertising wall for upcomming concerts now became a pop-up street gallery. I first asked some friends from art school to join. One little open call later we had the wall fully booked for over a year. The project (together with Small Museum) got development funding by Stimuleringsfonds which my former Paradiso collegues Sanne Lohof and Rosa Cherim are working on. Since I left Paradiso late 2020 I am still active as co-curator. Special credits for weatpaste master Ronald Linger who’s putting up every exhibition triweekly.

Bibian Bingen x Gevelexpositie

Perseverance and gusto.

For this one Bibian Bingen asked me to help her out with the design of her gevelexpositie. Bibian followed musicians during the lockdown days (and nights) to portray them in their offstage lives. Esther Baar wrote complementing lines of words for each artist and a beautiful introduction story for the project. I designed the typography by hand. Some inspired by the artist character, some were just freestyle. August 2021.

‘’Bibian contacted ten artists and asked them to let her into their lives, inviting them to come onto the project as collaborators instead of mere subjects. Together, they curated and produced unique photoshoots and corresponding images that mirror and/or complement the artists’ contemporary state of mind.’’
