12 Dec-17 April. The Stedelijk presents a retrospective dedicated to the life and pioneering work of the American art dealer, curator, author and researcher Seth Siegelaub (1941-2013) who is often referred to as the "Father of Conceptual Art."
Siegelaub used his New York gallery to actively, even aggressively, promote unconventional art in the 1960s and 1970s, once hosting a four-day-long art happening featuring the artist Arni Hendin. Siegelaub later moved to Paris where he concentrated on mass media from a left-wing perspective, and he remains a seminal influence on today's curators and artists.
The exhibition reveals insights into his wacky projects as well as his free-spirited lifestyle.
Tues, Wed 11.00-17.00, Thurs 11.00-22.00, Fri-Sun 10.00-18.00
