Exhibition — 27 Oct 2018 until 24 Feb 2019
Van der Stokker’s visual language of flowers, looping lines, clouds and curlicues in bold, bright colors, raises questions about what we regard as typically feminine. Her work can be placed in the tradition of feminist art, which does not conform to prevailing standards of good taste. As such, she often exploits concepts that are ‘banned’ from contemporary art, such as the frivolous and decorative.
The exhibition Lily van der Stokker - Friendly Good is her most extensive presentation in a museum so far and most of the works have not been shown in the Netherlands before.
This exhibition comes with an audio tour. In this audio tour, Lily van der Stokker herself talks about a particular artwork on display in each gallery.
The exhibition Lily van der Stokker – Friendly Good is generously supported by the International Collector Circle and Curator Circle of the Stedelijk Museum Fonds and by the Mondriaan Fonds.
