8 April-17 Sept. The Stedelijk Museum examines the oeuvre of a lesser-known artist associated with the De Stijl movement: Chris Beekman, an anarchist and politically active figure who left the movement two years after it was formed in Amsterdam in 1917.
The exhibition is part of the Stedelijk's celebration of 100th anniversary of De Stijl which combined an aesthetic and social vision based around strong architectural and design elements, from city planning to furniture.
The principal artists behind this radical new visual language, which lasted until around 1931, were Piet Mondrian, Theo Van Doesburg and Gerrit Rietveld.
The exhibition features some 80 works by Beekman, from the collections of the Stedelijk, Museum Kröller Müller and the Amsterdam Museum.
Tues, Wed 11.00-17.00, Thurs 11.00-22.00, Fri-Sun 10.00-18.00
