The Circle of Clothing

July 26th, 2014 - August 17th, 2014

The Circle of Clothing is a project by artist Pet van de Luijtgaarden, and it can be seen in the events area of the sculpture garden.

British research has shown that the average woman owns 2,400 articles of clothing over her lifetime. The Circle of Clothing, which takes the form of a clothesline, symbolizes the life process from birth to death. The piece involves the collaboration of 120 designers, artists, and private individuals, who are upcycling 2,400 white, pink, and red articles of clothing. Second-hand clothes and a wide variety of objects collected by the artist will form a single large art installation. The project discusses the contemporary phenomenon of overconsumption in a playful, accessible way.

Pet van de Luijtgaarden will be working on his project in the sculpture garden from 19 May to 25 July 2014. The Circle of Clothing will be on view from 26 July until 17 August 2014.

Armando

November 16th, 2014 - March 22nd, 2015

Painter, sculptor, draughtsman, writer and poet Armando (1929) is one of the Netherlands’ most versatile post-war artists. His substantial and powerful oeuvre is characterized by melancholy, guilt and memories of the past. In this exhibition we show a selection from the unique collection assembled by Armando’s ex-wife Tony de Meijere, which she has donated to the Kröller-Müller Museum on long-term loan.

Van Gogh & Co

April 25th, 2015 - September 27th, 2015

On 29 July 2015 it will be exactly 125 years since Vincent van Gogh died. The Van Gogh Europe Foundation, a collaboration of around 30 organisations is seizing this opportunity to honour the Dutch artists under the theme ‘125 years of inspiration’. Activities will be organised throughout the year in various towns in the Netherlands, Belgium, France and England that featured in the life and work of the artist.

The exhibition Van Gogh & Co, at the Kröller-Müller, will concentrate on the traditional genres at the end of the 19th century: still life, vista/perspective, nature, cityscape and portrait. Works by Vincent van Gogh - more than 50 in total including paintings and drawings - from various periods will be combined with those of his contemporaries from the museum’s own collection. Visitors will have the chance to draw parallels and discover how Van Gogh dealt with the various genres.
