Marlene Dumas: The Image as Burden

The Stedelijk presents a retrospective comprising over 200 drawings and paintings by the South African artist Marlene Dumas who has lived in Amsterdam since 1976.

The artist now works mainly with oil on canvas and ink on paper but in the past has used a range of media. Recurring subjects in her work include the physical reality of the human body and its psychological value, and the extreme fringes of life's cycle, from birth to death.

This is the first major solo exhibition of Dumas in the Netherlands in two decades, and includes some of her most important works, from the late 1970s to the present day. Highlights include rarely-seen drawings from her studio, and the 100-piece series Models from the collection of the Van Abbemuseum.

Tues, Wed 11.00-17.00, Thurs 11.00-22.00, Fri-Sun 10.00-18.00
