Back to the past: Mondriaan, Sluijters and Spoor reunited 

March 2nd-September 16th 2018 

Museum Villa Mondriaan unites three artists who, just over a century ago, organized a much-discussed exhibition of their oeuvre in the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam. They are Piet Mondriaan, who developed into one of the most influential painters in the world; the popular and much-beloved artist Jan Sluijters and the almost forgotten painter Cees Spoor. This exhibition focuses on the early work and talent of the artistic friends. Starting from the early paintings and sketches of Mondriaan, Sluijters and Spoor, the development of their youthful products will be exhibited.

The visitor will experience the atmosphere of 1909 in the exhibition Back to the past: Mondriaan, Sluijters and Spoor reunited. The exhibition room has been rebuilt after the fashion of the early twentieth century, inspired by the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam as it was in those days.

Sander Wassink 特斯韦克

March 2nd-September 16th 2018 

From March 2 – September 16, 2018 Dutch designer Sander Wassink (1984) will turn the pavilion upside down with his installation 特斯韦克. Wassink created a fictional pop-up store with only red objects. All these articles were made in China, but were carefully selected and bought by Wassink in Winterswijk. The shop has turned cheap items that were produced on the other side of the world into museum exhibits. The overwhelming predominance of the colour red will have a spherical and almost religious effect on the visitors. A must-see exhibition for this summer!


Dutch Design: Ineke Hans 

March 2nd-September 16th 2018 

From March 2 onward Museum Villa Mondriaan will exhibit stylish, but functional furniture designed by the Dutch industrial designer Ineke Hans (1966). Hans is well-known for her pragmatic and functional approach to design which is characterized by a clear style and bright shapes and colours. She uses traditional and modern open-source production methods in producing her work. She employs a playful interaction between man, object and space, aiming at socially relevant and meaningful designs.

André Thijssen 

March 2nd-September 16th 2018 

Villa Mondriaan exhibits the autonomous work of André Thijssen in the two rooms on the first floor of what used to be the family home of the Mondriaans. In this work elusive aspects are dominant. Through his lens Thijssen observes common situations in the street, that we usually pass without noticing. Thijssen shows us strong pictures of daily life and makes the observer experience the world around him more intensely.

New exhibition: The Spiritual Path

September 21, 2018 – March 3, 2019

In collaboration with Gemeentemuseum The Hague, museum Villa Mondriaan is organising the exhibition The Spiritual Path from September 21, 2018 to March 3, 2019. Faith has been extremely influential to Mondriaan’s personal and artistic life. Mondriaan grew up with his father’s strict protestant views, but eventually chose the more spiritual path of theosophy. Museum Villa Mondriaan’s new exhibition The Spiritual Path focuses on the artist’s religious journey. Benno Tempel, director of Gemeentemuseum The Hague and curator of the Dutch Pavilion at Venice Biennale 2019, will be guest curator of this exhibition.
