Van Eyck

The Van Eyck is a multiform institute for fine art, design and reflection. International artists, designers, curators, photographers, architects and writers stay at the academy to work on their projects. The Van Eyck also offers a public programme of exhibitions, presentations and lectures. The well-equipped labs (wood, metal, printing, photography/new media and a library) and the café-restaurant are open to everyone.

    Eloise Sweetman - Roll on, Roll on, Phenomena (until you are no more)

    Van Eyck participant and curator Eloise Sweetman develops an exhibition programme in her studio.  As a discursive exhibition program, the artworks, readings, talks, and audience become companions, intersecting, breaking apart, and reconfiguring in an iterative and continuous becoming with the world. Visiting hours: 12:00h-16:00h on Monday-Friday or by appointment on weekends.

    When Attitudes Become Multiform

    The group exhibition WHEN ATTITUDES BECOME MULTIFORM  brings together the work of the participating artists in an integral installation. The exhibition  is composed by Van Eyck participant Tim Hollander. In assembling this exhibition, Tim Hollander considered his own work together with that of other participating artists and items such as sketches, references, books and leftover materials from the studio as equal elements. The result is an installation in which diverse attitudes, order and chaos, hierarchy and non-hierarchy, are able to coexist.
