Bij nader inzien, Accents from the Cleveringa Collection showcases the work of three very different artists who work in diverse disciplines but make art in a similarly bold and consistently radical way: Leo Vroegindeweij (b. 1955), Rob van Koningsbruggen (b. 1948) and Carel Balth (b. 1939).
All three artists’ work was collected by the Hague collectorPiet Cleveringa (1917–2013), who amassed an impressive trove of postwar Dutch art starting in the 1980s and then generously donated it to various museums. Between 1980 and 1985, in his gallery De Kijkschuur in the village of Acquoy, Cleveringa staged a series of exhibitions he called “Accents”. Parts Project commemorates Cleveringa’s life by choosing three artists from his stable and exhibiting them together, just as the collector would have.
