Amersfoort & Utrecht

100th anniversary Mondriaan

In honour of the 100th anniversary of the art movement known as ‘De Stijl’, NBTC Holland Marketing has declared 2017 the ‘Mondrian to Dutch Design’ Year. Various cities and regions throughout the Netherlands, including Utrecht and Amersfoort, will host parts of the Year's programme. De Stijl continues to have a tremendous influence on art, design, architecture and implements. Four of the most important De Stijl artists ‒ Piet Mondrian, Gerrit Rietveld, Theo van Doesburg and Bart van der Leck ‒ were born in Utrecht or Amersfoort. Consequently, Utrecht & Amersfoort are showcasing these artists' heritage. In 2017, influential work by artists including Gerrit Rietveld and Piet Mondrian will be uniquely spotlighted in new exhibitions and events. Although Rietveld and Mondrian never met back in the day, this will be achieved symbolically in 2017 during the Mondrian to Dutch Design theme year. Businesses, shops and numerous organisations, too, will embrace the theme year with dozens of activities.

The distance from Estate Landgoed Ruwinkel to Amersfoort is aprox. 15 kilometers and Utrecht aprox kilometers.

Exhibition 6 may till 3rd september! The three primary colours red, yellow and blue are archetypal and synonymous with De Stijl. Kunsthal KAdE will showcase the use of colour by De Stijl artists in a special exhibition. De Stijl artists strived for colour as an independent element ‘from art’ and not ‘from nature’, guided by the idea that the relationship between colours would lead to ‘harmony’. Using examples by De Stijl artists, Kunsthal KAdE shows the connections to the present and how artists have continued to explore the autonomous power of colour decades after De Stijl was formed. The result is an artistic journey from abstract expressionism and post-war concrete art to contemporary artists who have explored colour as an independent element.
