Stitching Maldoror: summer exhibition
We’re proud to announce our summer exhibition, showcasing works by Anthony Blokdijk, Jan Duivenvoorden, Floris Duijvestein, Marie-claire van der Heijden, Sarina Missot and Victor van der Oever. This particular group of artists share a link with Stichting (foundation) Maldoror (The Hague, 1987).
In 2012 Stichting Maldoror celebrated its 25th birthday by travelling to Indonesia to trade 25 Dutch artworks for 25 Indonesian art works. In Yogyakarta, Maldoror chairman Anthony Blokdijk was invited to set up a project for children with Down Syndrome. As part of the funding, a website was created where friends of Maldoror would offer artworks for sale.
The exhibition ‘Stitching Maldoror’ is the finale of the project, with works created by the six artists who were presented on the website. The title refers to Google’s auto-correct function when searching for Stichting Maldoror.
Mimesia Gallery is open every weekend in August from 12–6 pm, and on appointment via our website https://mimesia.gallery/contact. The opening event on Friday evening August 5th will start at 7.30pm.
