Anne Imhof, with the Stedelijk

The Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam and the Hartwig Art Foundation are co-presenting a performative exhibition of Anne Imhof, set to open in autumn 2022 at the Stedelijk.

The exhibition took its beginnings at the Garage Museum of Contemporary Art in Moscow, where it was set to open in March of 2022. In the light of the ongoing war in Ukraine, the team of Garage has decided to put their exhibition programme on hold until the human and political tragedy has ceased.

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.
