10 Juli Artists Talk (NL)
Specimens | Forgotten Seeds
The current exhibition on seeds is extended until July 10 and on that day we organise an Artist Talk (it is in Dutch). Marlies Lageweg and Loes Schepens will talk about their projects. Who knows the story of the woven rice seeds? And what kind of story does the poppy offer when talking about opium? How will we deal with our biodiversity in the future? How can art contribute to the appreciation of nature? Seeds fascinated both artists and they arrived at the images featured in the Specimens | Forgotten Seeds exhibition. In this context of seeds, perhaps there are more similarities that yield more new stories?
Saturday, July 10, Walk-in 13:30, (Free) Talk 14:00-15:00
Maximum of 10 people
