New exhibition: Face Off: Mondriaan vs. contemporary artists

March 8 - September 22, 2019

This summer's exhibition in Villa Mondriaan is centred around Mondriaan's portraits. His paintings are face to face with portraits made by contemporary artists in a real cultural face off. As such, artists like Philip Akkerman, Koen Vermeule and Ans Markus start a dialogue with Piet Mondriaan. From opposite sides of the exhibition hall their portraits stare at each other; friendly or perhaps challanging. Who confronts Michelle Obama's portrait or who will be Mondriaan's uncle Frits's opponent? What image did Mondriaan wish to show of the young Queen Wilhelmina? Did he have the same intention as koos Breukel had half a century later when he created his portrait of Queen Máxima? See the variety in portraiture of the last 140 years in the new exhibition 'Face Off: Mondriaan vs. contemporary artists'! 

As part of Face Off, Museum Villa Mondriaan hosts three solo exhibitions by Iris van Dongen, Lisa Konno and Vytautas Kumza as well.

Lisa Konno & Sarah Blok, Nobu (film still), 2018
