Exhibition: The Soul in Limbo, November 24, 2015 until March 6, 2016

The Soul in Limbo* is the first museum retrospective of Tee's work to be held in the Netherlands. Taking the themes of 'Language', 'Choreography' and ‘Occult Geometry’, the exhibition looks back on her work's development over the last 10 years and includes new pathways extending into the future. Elements from Tee's previous installations are grouped in each section and include banners, ceramic vases, spheres and masks, photography, sculpture, knitted floor pieces and diagrams. The exhibition also features material connected with her work processes and sources of inspiration.

Karel Appel - The Opera

His designs for The National Opera
20-02-16 - 15-05-16

In 2016 it has been 10 years since Karel Appel had passed away. An occasion to collaborate with The National Opera and to shine the spotlights on the stage scenery works. The same Opera staff that worked with Appel have restored various pieces especially for this exhibition. Displaying these objects in a museum creates a totally different experience. The visitor moves like an actor over the 'stage', past the scenery and light plan that is designed again by technicians from the National Opera. From close-by you can see the human hand of Appel and his assistants.
