Art out of Necessity
October 3 2020 - January 31, 2021
Museum Jan Cunen, Oss (The Netherlands)
Upon entering, in the cafetaria a display case showed photos made by Amir Avraham, who designed the accompanying book marvellously.
The book can still be acquired. The title, Kunst uit Noodzaak is the same as that of the show. It is in Dutch, but the design alone makes it worth its (modest) price.
In the first gallery, where a reduced version of Madame B, titled Precarity, was displayed, we also showed some of Emma’s dresses and jewelry, since her “emotional capitalism” has become central in this work.
The installation of A Long History of Madness was combined with a painting, Das Tier, by the Dutch artist Armando.
A few days after the opening weekend (October 2-3) all museums in the Netherlands were closed for two weeks. Then they were open again, and when many people got ready to go, it closed again, Mid-December - just before the holidays.
