Midi de l'Art : Erwin Olaf & Hans Op de Beeck - Inspired by Steichen (Liste d'attente)

2023-01-26 11:30:00 2023-01-26 11:30:00 Midi de l'Art : Erwin Olaf & Hans Op de Beeck - Inspired by Steichen (Liste d'attente) Musée national d'histoire et d'art Exhibition from 16.12.2022 until 11.06.2023 Guided visit in English by Ruud Priem, curator of the exhibition Marking the 50th anniversary of Edward Steichen’s death, this exciting project showcases the work of two eminent contemporary artists, Dutch photographer Erwin Olaf (*1959) and Belgian visual artist Hans Op de Beeck (*1969). Out of their appreciation for each other and their shared admiration for Steichen’s oeuvre, Olaf and Op de Beeck agreed to collaborate on a project for the first time ever. The exhibition features Olaf’s series Im Wald, together with watercolours and sculptures by Op de Beeck and landscape photographs by Steichen himself, creating surprising connections between the three artists. Although very different, they come together like virtuoso musicians, creating a new harmony, a richly variegated presentation of imagery in black, white and grey tones that is strikingly unified and self-evident. The show, thus, provides a new context for the oeuvre of the Luxembourg-born photographer and encourages viewers to (re)discover the artistic qualities of his prints through a contemporary lens. In addition to their joint show, Olaf and Op de Beeck will also present a curated selection of works by Steichen from the MNHA’s extensive collection in the museum’s Steichen cabinet.
