Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam and Hartwig Art Foundation present: ANNE IMHOF – YOUTH (1 Oct. 2022 – 29 Jan. 2023).

This autumn, Anne Imhof is invited to take over the Stedelijk’s 1,100-square-metre lower-level gallery. Combining art, architecture, light, and a sound composed especially for the occasion, she will transform the space into a labyrinthine total installation. Imhof’s first solo show in the Netherlands is a collaboration between the Stedelijk and the Hartwig Art Foundation.

In June 2020 the Hartwig Art Foundation cooperated with the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam and De Balie in order to realise a unique exhibition of two seminal films by the acclaimed artist Arthur Jafa. The films were shown daily at De Balie from 21 – 25 June and on 28 June 2020 there was a conversation at De Balie in response to it, led by Jörgen Tjon A Fong, with – among others – artists Charl Landvreugd, Iris Kensmil and Raul Balai.

The Hartwig Art Foundation supported this exhibition financially and through the loan of Jafa’s film The White Album.
