Distributors, West Gallery, The Hague

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I visited the exhibition Distributors at West Gallery to write a review for Villa La Repubblica. Read the full review here (in Dutch). The exhibition was made by artist Remco Torenbosch with works by six artists of very different generations but all were/are busy with the distribution of/in their works in an alternative way.

in the back gallery Wendelien van Oldenborgh’s La Javanaise of 2013 can be seen. All these artists have thought of how to distribute the information or artistic content they want to share and made distribution part of their aesthetic ventures.
