The exhibition Koempels opened on Thursday October 22nd, 18:00 at Framer Framed. The opening was in presence of artists and curator and writer/journalist/presentor Marcia Luyten gave a short introduction.
Koempels is a word from a dialect spoken in Limburg, a province in the south of the Netherlands, and means ‘mineworker’ but also ‘buddy’. The exhibition presents a new generation of a group of painters called ‘Amsterdamse Limburgers’ from the 1950s. In the exhibition, contemporary painting is combined with social and art historical research. Different cultures from the South and the North of the Netherlands are brought together in imagery, outlining how the relationship between periphery and centre has changed since the closing of the mines in Limburg (exactly 50 years ago).
Koempels is curated by Lene ter Haar in cooperation with Rik Meijers, and presents the work of seven different artists;
Joan van Barneveld
Sidi El Karchi
Bas de Wit
Koempels is supported by: Framer Framed, SCHUNCK*, Mondriaan Fonds, Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds, M2015 and Tolhuistuin.
