Art & Project

Nog niet verschenen, verwacht vanaf 30-11-2023

The Amsterdam gallery Art & Project (1968-2001) was pivotal to the development of contemporary art in the Netherlands and beyond for more than 33 years. Founders Adriaan van Ravesteijn (1938-2015) and Geert van Beijeren (1933-2005) presented a pioneering programme of work by both national and international artists. Marinus Boezem, Stanley Brouwn, Jan Dibbets, Charlotte Posenenske, Gilbert&George, Lawrence Weiner and Sol LeWitt are on the impressive list of artists associated with the gallery. Van Beijeren and Van Ravesteijn published a total of 156 bulletins to draw attention to their exhibitions. The bulletins quickly became an experimental medium: they became the carriers of conceptual artists’ ideas and sometimes even functioned as conceptual works of art, themselves. Art & Project: A History captures the history and influence of this gallery. The book approaches the exhibitions, bulletins and the social network surrounding the gallery and its influence on the (inter)national art scene from various angles. Thanks to extensive research and previously unpublished (visual) material, this hefty book provides an indispensable overview of the history of contemporary art in the Netherlands.
