After the museum reopens, the Stedelijk will continue the series stedelijk|gallery talks, in which well-known scientists, artists, curators, and critics organize a tour around a selection of exhibited works in the museum on the basis of their own expertise and background.

Leontine Coelewij, who works for the Stedelijk as the curator for contemporary art, will give a Gallery Talk in the afternoon.

Leontine Coelewij was co-curator for the presentation of the collection of “Art after 1960” in the newly reopened Stedelijk Museum. Coelewij is currently working on a major retrospective of the artist Aernout Mik, Communitas, which opens in late April 2013 at the Stedelijk Museum. In addition, she is preparing exhibitions with Paulina Olowska (2013) and Dumas (2014) in collaboration with Tate Modern and Fondation Beyeler, Basel. Coelewij received her masters degree in art history and archaeology from the University of Amsterdam. She was the founder of the Stedelijk Museum Bureau Amsterdam (1993-1998), where she made exhibitions with Inez van Lamsweerde, Rineke Dijkstra, and Lily van der Stokker. Together with Martijn van Nieuwenhuyzen, she was the Stedelijk curator of "Wild Walls" (1995) and "From the Corner of the Eye" (1996). During the Stedelijk Museum CS, she organized several group exhibitions, such as "20 / 20 Vision" (2004, with Mathias Poledna, Steve McQueen, and Marc Bijl), Time and Again (2004, with Paulina Olowska, Wilhelm Sasnal, Ondák, and Deimantas Narkevicius ), "Mapping the Studio" (2006) and "Mapping the City" (2007), and solo presentations by Tobias Rehberger and Florian Pumhösl.
