Exhibition: 15.04.2017 – 15.05.2017
“Opmaat” — GROUP EXHIBITION with Seet van Hout and Uwe Poth
LOCATION: Museum Het Valkhof . Kelfkensbos 59 . NL- 6511 Nijmegen/The Netherlands
Museum Het Valkhof will be happy to launch a solo exhibition entitled ‘Land in sight’ in 2018. The small exhibition ‘Opmaat’ is preceded by this. In his work, Poth often takes back to history, to artists and artworks of the past. In his great work ‘Peace of Nijmegen’, Poth processes the group portraits of the seventeenth-century negotiators at the Peace of Nijmegen, a painting of Henri Gascard from 1679, which is visible in the adjacent museum hall. Poth’s equally great ‘Peace in Nijmegen’ is the contemporary contradiction with people from now.
