The Stedelijk Museum is pleased to invite you to view the exhibition ON THE MOVE Storytelling in Contemporary Photography and Graphic Design in the company of the exhibition curators and invited jury members for the Proposals for Municipal Art Acquisitions. In this series of Gallery Talks, they’ll each discuss a group of works in the exhibition on the basis of their own knowledge and expertise in the fields of photography and design. You will have the opportunity to take a number of tours, each from a unique perspective.

The exhibition presents 28 artists who tell stories in a playful, critical, and challenging way, using photography and graphic design in the form of artists’ books, spatial installations, and new technical possibilities such as apps and websites. During the Gallery Talks, the curators and invited jury members discuss the works in the exhibition according to their professional backgrounds: Carolien Glazenburg (composer of the exhibition and curator of graphic design at the Stedelijk Museum), Anne Ruygt (composer of the exhibition and junior curator of photography), Ad van Denderen (invited jury member and photographer), Mirjam Kooiman  (trainee curator of photography), Karin Krijgsman (invited jury member and director of studies of the photography course at AKV St. Joost), and Dimitri Nieuwenhuizen (invited jury member and co-founder of the multidisciplinary design agency LUST).
