Please join us for a view of the new 400 Years Later — Cite Goes Dutch exhibition, opening to the public on May 16 and running through June 14.
1609: The Dutch Discover New York
2009: New Yorkers Discover Dutch Design
The exhibit presents everything from furniture and tabletop objects to jewelry by 23 emerging Dutch designers and manufacturers and 1 photographer. Curated by Studio Jan Habraken and Alissia Melka-Teichroew in collaboration with Wabnitz Editions Ltd and Josée Lepage, the work draws an outline of contemporary design coming out of, and shaped by, the unique climate of the densely populated Netherlands, whose designers grow up below sea level and under heavy gray skies.
400 Years Later will introduce recent and never-before-seen work by Studio Oooms, Frederik Roijé, Jorre van Ast, Mirjam van der Lubbe, Studio Glithero, Sander Mulder, Lucas Maassen, Lotte van Laatum, Dave Keune, Maarten Baptist, Lisa Klappe, Jan Habraken and byAMT Studio, among others, that is both intricate and pared-down, pragmatic and poetic, witty and well-crafted.
