Events — 19 Feb 2016

For years, The Stedelijk Museum has organized artists’ workshops for children, leaving the adults jealously behind. That changes with the Stedelijk’s Friday Night programming: once a month, visitors will have the opportunity to work directly with artists and learn about their work by doing it for themselves. 

Entrance fee to the Stedelijk Museum (free for 18 yrs and under)
Audi zaal 0.1
19 Feb, 6:45 PM until 8:00 PM

This month: Keep on Drawing with Rop van Mierlo. When van Mierlo begins to draw or paint, he has no idea where it will lead him. Coincidence determines his work, and he will let you experience how this happens. Models move, hands shake, and Rop whispers in your ear... But whatever happens: keep on drawing!


7:45 arrivals (large entrance hall)
8:00 workshop drawing with model (Audi gallery 0.1)
9:00 workshop ends, museum open until 10.00


Rop van Mierlo works in various media, but his process nearly always begins with drawing or painting. Animals are a recurring motif in his work: it fascinates him how mankind has always wanted to gain control over animals. In his books Wild Animals and Some logic they break free from the system, regardless of all rules.
