Group exhibition: Frames Revisited / Cadres revisités
Cultural Centre of The Netherlands
November 3 - December 18 2005
Masterpieces of Dutch portrait photography shown in old frames from the Frits Lugt Collection
La Fondation Custodia and the Institut Néerlandais have invited the gallery owner and exhibition organiser Willem van Zoetendaal to make a selection from the thousand or so old frames from the Frits Lugt Collection. Van Zoetendaal has also chosen a selection from the great contemporary Dutch portrait photographers such as Rineke Dijkstra, Céline van Balen, Bertien van Manen, Hellen van Meene, Carla van de Puttelaar, Gerald van der Kaap, Paul Kooiker, Marjoleine Boonstra, Diana Monkhorst, Leo Divendal and Koos Breukel.
Their work will be presented in the selected frames. The exhibition gives the public a new insight into old frames and contemporary portrait photography, thus creating a fascinating dialogue between the present and the past. A catalogue accompanies the exhibition.
The exhibition will move to the Frans Hals Museum in Haarlem after Paris.
