Description

Opening of Stanley Brouwn: This Way Brouwn at EENWERK

Part of 'Three Crossings' this exhibition features This Way Brouwn, from an interactive conceptual series in which passersby created maps to give the artist directions, in addition to selected works that represents his overall oeuvre and interventions.

Stanley Brouwn (Surinam 1935 – Amsterdam 2017) Starting in 1962 and until his passing in May 2017, Stanley Brouwn had consistently insisted that his biography and art work not to be printed or reproduced in any publication related to exhibitions of his work. The brochures for Brouwn’s retrospective at Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven and MACBA in Barcelona (2005-2006) specified that his work is mainly “about measurements and real distances, any image of his work could only be seen as a distortion.” Abiding by Brouwn’s wish, and honouring his legacy, we decided not to include Brouwn’s biography, and to include instead blank pages in the booklet accompanying his exhibition at EENWERK.

Opening:
Wednesday 22 November: 18:00-20:00
Opening hours during Amsterdam Art Weekend: Thu 23 – Sun 26 November, 12 – 18.00 hrs

Exhibition dates for EENWERK:
22 November 2017 through18 February 2018

About 'Three Crossings': Starting 22 November, the Prince Claus Fund, together with the Amsterdam Fund for the Arts (AFK) present ‘Three Crossings: El-Salahi, Hammons, Brouwn’. This three-part exhibition features works by Ibrahim El-Salahi (Sudan, UK), David Hammons (USA), and Stanley Brouwn (Surinam, Netherlands) at three Amsterdam locations. The works by these three visionary artists are innovative, minimalist, and sharply critical, yet infused with wit.

The opening of Brouwn’s exhibition at EENWERK on 22 November, El-Salahi’s work at the Prince Claus Fund Gallery on 23 November, and Hammons’ work at De Waalse Kerk on 25 November are each part of Amsterdam Art Weekend.
