GUIDED TOUR: exhibition Regie: Rembrandt in Museum Rembrandthuis

Rembrandt was a masterful storyteller, not in words but in images. For this he used techniques that were also used in theater, such as facial expressions, gestures, lighting, costumes and props. And he searched for the moment when the tension can be cut – the ultimate suspense. In the exhibition Regie: Rembrandt, Museum Rembrandtthuis puts Rembrandt’s role as director of his works of art in the spotlight for the first time. And it reveals how 17th-century painters and theater-makers inspired each other.

In Rembrandt’s Amsterdam, you were able to experience various forms of theater on the streets. Especially the annual autumn fair offered a lot of entertainment, with musicians, quacks and traveling theater companies.

Rembrandt drew a lot in the neighborhood, where many actors lived. As a result, there are several drawings of actors in the exhibition, including Een kwakzalver op een podium voor een bord, met een papegaai op zijn schouder, from c.1636. The quack stands on a raised stage and has assumed a confident pose. Rembrandt knew how to depict the invisible here: the spoken word. The quack’s opened mouth and outstretched arm indicate that he is in the middle of his nonsense story.

Senior Curator Leonore van Sloten will provide an exclusive tour of the exhibition.

Date: Friday, May 10
Location: Museum Rembrandt House, Jodenbreestraat 4, 1011 NK Amsterdam
Time: 11 AM

GUIDED TOUR: exhibition Albrecht Genin – Ocean Stories in Museum Nairac Barneveld

During his lifetime, working mainly in his studios in Berlin, Germany and Nong Khai, Thailand, artist Albrecht Genin (Oldenburg 1945 – Berlin 2013) built up an impressive body of work.

Far removed from artistic trends, museums, art critics and galleries, Genin managed to transform the reality of life into a livable fantasy. From the beginning, Genin chose printed materials such as bibles, law books, maps, sheet music and cashbooks to work on. These journeys, along the oceans, are reflected in the exhibition Ocean Stories.

During a special evening opening, you will be welcomed by Margot Welle, director of Museum Nairac and given a Walk and Talk tour of the exhibition by guest curator Jeroen Dijkstra (Livingstone Gallery). He compiled the book “Albrecht Genin – Ocean Stories, works on paper” for this exhibition.

Date: Monday, May 6
Time: 7 PM-7.30 PM – reception, 7.30 PM-8.15 PM – Walk and Talk tour and 8.15 PM-9 PM – closing drinks
