At the invitation of the 50-year-old Institut Néerlandais, Han Nefkens and Hilde Teerlinck (director of the FRAC Nord-Pas de Calais in Dunkirk) co-designed this exhibition, which emphasises the links between Dutch and French artists. For Choix d’artistes
, Nefkens and Teerlinck asked seven Dutch contemporary artists from the H+F Collection to each invite a French artist with whose universe they feel a connection.
The proposal resulted in the following ‘invitations’:
Gerald Van der Kaap: Jean-Charles Hue
Hans van der Meer: Luc Moullet
Juul Hondius: Laurent Grasso
Martine Stig: Luc Delahaye
Otto Berchem: Michael Blum
Viktor & Rolf: Jean-Baptiste Claude Odiot
Daan van Golden: Yves Klein
The Institut Néerlandais publishes a cahier
to accompany the exhibition.
