Most striking feature:
The color white. Maybe it’s an idea for you to think about what white means to you before you visit the exhibition. Does it remind you of the minimalistic interiors from Scandinavia? The luxurious feeling of pure white blankets on the bed? The sandy beach at Tulum in Mexico? A lemon ice cream? Or just a blank sheet. The beginning of a sketch, a book, a dream – even this post on my blog started with a blank page. The exhibition Wit (White in Dutch) in the Nederlands Fotomuseum displays photography, art, design, film, quotes and fashion in white. As curator Anne van der Zwaag said: ‘white may seem minimalistic, but it’s just a very rich color’. By seeing this exhibition you come in contact with different meaning of white. From birth to the famous tunnel of light at death. To compile the exhibition they used work of great artists such as Inez van Lamsweerde, Carli Hermès, Anton Corbijn, Iris van Herpen, Erwin Olaf, Joep van Lieshout and many more. One thing is certain: if you leave this exhibition, you overflow with new ideas. Fortunately, there are sheets of paper on which you can write down your interpretation of white. Definitely a go see!
FYI: This is the first part of the exhibition Zwart/Wit. Next year Black is playing the lead role.
