Exhibition — Oct 26, 2024 until Mar 23, 2025

Every two years, the Stedelijk Museum organizes an extensive group exhibition with works by artists or designers who live and work in the Netherlands. The leading principle is always a discipline or an urgent theme. The museum’s new course in the field of photography is the theme chosen for 2024: works that emphasize the intersection of visual arts and photography.

Every two years, the Stedelijk Museum organizes an extensive group exhibition with works by artists or designers who live and work in the Netherlands. The leading principle is always a discipline or an urgent theme. The museum’s new course in the field of photography is the theme chosen for 2024: works that emphasize the intersection of visual arts and photography.

This year the choice was made based on nominations by about twenty scouts from the field, who submitted a longlist to a jury. Ahmet Polat (editor-in-chief of broadcaster HUMAN, photographer, curator, film and theatre maker), Amal Alhaag (curator, researcher, and co-initiator/facilitator of a.o. Metro54, and formerly the Side Room), Laurens Otto (curator and critic), Sara Blokland (visual artist, researcher and curator), and the curators of the exhibition: co-curator Mirelva Berghout (independent curator and cultural programmer) and Vincent van Velsen (curator contemporary art and photography, Stedelijk Museum) are part of the jury and collectively made the selection.

The following 21 artists are selected:

Aimée Zito Lema / Ana María Gómez López / Anika Schwarzlose / Bruno Zhu / Gilleam Trapenberg / Hira Nabi / Ima-Abasi Okon / Jaya Pelupessy / Katarina Jazbec / Katja Mater / Katja Novitskova / Kévin Bray / Kevin Osepa / Kwabena Sekyi Appiah-nti / Mandy Franca / Neo Matloga / Paoletta Holst / Robert Glas / Semâ Bekirović / Sharelly Emanuelson / Vytautas Kumža

During the exhibition, that will be on view from 26 October 2024, the Stedelijk will announce the acquisitions for the museum collection.

The biannual Proposals for the Museum Collection are generously supported by the City of Amsterdam.
