“LAND IN ZICHT” – Uwe Poth – solo show
LOCATION: De Houtwerf, Hatertseweg 23, NL-6533 AB Nijmengen
Uwe Poth’s (* 1946, Kiel) solo exhibition LAND IN ZICHT (engl. Land in Sight) takes place at the Het Valkhof Museum in order to his recent exhibition Portretten vol betekenis (engl. Reasonable Portraits). The exhibition contains about 100 paintings, 100 drawings, photographs and artist books. Poth’s Pantheon, a series of 140 portraits of special people from the past, was shown at the Nouvelles Images Gallery in Den Haag and in the Charlottenburg Palace in Berlin. About thirty of these portraits are now in various collections, including the Royal House. The rest of the portraits are now shown in De Houtwerf, while the artist portrays people on site. Conversely, it is similar to a portrait of the old series, if you buy one you get a portrait of yourself for free. All portraits are recorded in the accompanying catalog to be published by the Het Valkhof Museum.
De Houtwerf Foundation creates a platform in the field of art, culture, technology and science striving for cross-connections, in which research, lectures, exhibitions, events and content programs meet inspirational, lively and open.
