PROJECT 08 ART – HISTORY – COLLECTION

A selection from the collection of Reyn van der Lugt

19-11-17 > 21-01-18.

Art – History – Collection showcases a selection of artworks from the collector and former museum director Reyn van der Lugt’s extensive trove of contemporary art. Specially for Parts Projects, he has made a selection of photographs, drawings, paintings and sculptures that refer to the rich world of art history, from the destruction of images to their reproduction, from the process of creating art to the exhibition of it.

All his life, Van der Lugt has been interested in various aspects of art history, from the Greeks and Romans through the Renaissance and classicism to the present day. He says, “I find it fascinating when contemporary artists allow themselves to be influenced by the visual language of the past and take it as a point of departure for their own art, whether as inspiration or as the subject of commentary.” Art – History – Collection bears witness to this fascination, shared by the collector and the artists.
