I visited the new art venue Parts Project to write a review about its first exhibition for Villa La Repubblica.

The exhibitions will be based on or inspired by private collections, but they won’t be collection shows.

Van den Burg wants to show works by artists who are lesser known and whose works should be more accessible to a wider audience.

The present show To the End of the World or to the Edge of the Paper is a combination of works by Bob Law (1932-2004), an artist hardly known in this country (and not known to me either until recently) and by Jos van Merendonk (1956), an artist whose work is also quite unknown (I remember his early works from the 1980’s).

Both artists being draftsmen in the first place, the combination makes for a good and inspiring show.
