MIGRATIONS: Journeys into British Art
This exhibition explores British art through the theme of migration from 1500 to the present day, reflecting the remit of Tate Britain Collection displays. From the sixteenth- and seventeenth-century Flemish and Dutch landscape and still-life painters who came to Britain in search of new patrons, through moments of political and religious unrest, to Britain’s current position within the global landscape, the exhibition reveals how British art has been fundamentally shaped by successive waves of migration. Cutting a swathe through 500 years of history, and tracing not only the movement of artists but also the circulation of visual languages and ideas, this exhibition includes works by artists from Lely, Kneller,Kauffman to Sargent, Epstein, Mondrian, Bomberg, Bowling andthe Black Audio Film Collective as well as recent work by contemporary artists.
Westpoort - Where Magic Happens
today we met a lot of interesting people who were equally interested in us.
Thank you, OGA and supporting organizations for bringing us all together.
HMC: what is Vintage?
Hout- en Meubelen College Amsterdam - HMC - is located in the heart of Westpoort Amsterdam and is 100 meters away from Artches, students of which seem to have redefined the term ‘vintage’ all together.
On Tuesday, 10 July, we had a pleasure of meeting 2 incredible people from HMC and talked of the future. Stay tuned on how we progress.
However, what stole my eye that day was the vision of the students expressed through the work in this small selection of the photographs. We’ve taken quite a few, so here’s the link to the on-line album.
Dutch History, Portraiture, Genre Scenes
The Dutch Republic was politically so unlike the other countries of Europe at this time, which had real consequences for the art world.
The influence of Calvinism on the art world was significant. Almost all religious images were banned from Calvinist churches, and the most rigorous Calvinists would even have frowned on them in private homes. The House of Orange in The Hague had a modest court, and its art patronage was limited in scale. What did this mean?
Port of Amsterdam - connecting them all
Central Station is the most ‘known’ access to the Port of Amsterdam, but it’s the North and the West that are the most interesting and un-explored places to visit!
Check out Haven Safari and keep your eyes on Artches :)
