Les mille lieux de l'Art. Photographies by Ad Petersen
27.02. – 26.05.2013
Ad Petersen (b. 1931) was from 1960 to 1990 curator at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam. During this period he captured on photograph his encounters and collaborations with numerous international artists (including Christo, Duchamp, Fontana, de Saint Phalle, Kienholz, Oldenburg, Raetz, Rauschenberg, Tinguely and many others). His sensitive portraits and other photographs offer extraordinary insights both into the work and also into the private sphere of the artists concerned. This photographic material is complemented by works of art, letters and other documents that provide a record of the often life-long friendships between this fine photographer and exhibition curator and the artists with whom he worked.
