A different perspective on the collection with Aynouk Tan
5 Aug 2016

In honor of Amsterdam Gay Pride / EuroPride 2016, the Stedelijk Museum has invited three speakers to share their perspectives on the museum’s collection from an LGBTQI (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Questioning and Intersex) related viewpoint.

Stedelijk Museum, meeting point at Schiphol Lounge
2 - 3 pm
Entrance ticket Stedelijk Museum + € 2,50



During these Gallery Talks, Aynouk Tan (fashion journalist), Christine Quinan (Gender Studies, Utrecht University) and Martijn van Nieuwenhuyzen (curator Stedelijk Museum) will guide you through their selections of artworks from the collection. They will offer personal insights and interpretations, and discuss their selections with a particular emphasis on queer, feminist and gender studies, as well as LGBTQI-related angles.

Join us during Pride Week to experience the Stedelijk collection from the unique perspective of these three speakers!
