Exhibition — 30 Oct until 8 Nov 2013
Stedelijk at Trouw presents: Contemporary Art Club - UTOPIA. This edition features video installations of Cyprien Gaillard, Sarah Morris, Dan Walwin and Hannah Weinberger. The special opening event of this second edition will take place on October 31st.
Is our view of the future in the 21st century still steeped in utopian sentiments or dystopian imagery, or have we abandoned these modernistic notions long ago? During this edition we can view the video installations of Cyprien Gaillard, Sarah Morris, Dan Walwin and Hannah Weinberger. Together they explore (im)possibilities of utopia and dystopia in their specific relation to cities and urban development.
The industrial setting of the Trouw building makes the ambivalence of absolute concepts such as utopia and dystopia extremely tangible.
During the opening night on Thursday October 31st, the participating artists Dan Walwin and Hannah Weinberger will be interviewed. There will also be an exclusive lecture done by the popular American sci-fi writer Hugh Howey (known from the trilogy WOOL, SILO and DUST) about a post apocalyptic underground silo.
Contemporary Art Club is completely free during the duration of each edition between 17.30 and 02.00. The opening event will have entrance fees.
Contemporary Art Club is organized by the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam and De Verdieping, the monthly culture programme of TrouwAmsterdam.
Exhibition Opening hours: tue - sat from 6.30 - 2.00 am.
