In this exhibition the visitor travels to France with Jan Sluijters and to Spain with Leo Gestel, but also to Indonesia with Isaac Israels, to America with Adrian Lubbers and to the North Pole with Louis Apol. Scores of travel-fevered artists vie for attention, with attention to painting, travel sketches, sculptural work, but also photography, installation and video. With works of contemporary artists like: Joost Conijn, Jan Dibbets, Bertien van Manen, Rob Birza, Jennifer Tee and Roy Villevoye. Simultaneously, the Frans Hals Museum will show 17th century paintings that touch on the same subject.
Third Nature questions how we live dependent upon what lies in-between us: infrastructure is the given answer to the question of how worlds are constituted. The exhibition explores how it feels to function in a world governed by infrastructure, through forms of divination, imagination and speculation. Curated by Laura Herman. With: Nina Canell, Marjolijn Dijkman, Femke Herregraven, Basim Magdy, Suzanne Treister.
