Immigration Centuries

June 30 – July 30, 2023

The annual postcard show is based on the theme of Immigrant Centuries from Alberto Ríos’s poem of the same name.

Published in 2020, Ríos’s poem reflects the debates about immigration that dominated that year’s presidential election, spurred by then-candidate Donald J. Trump’s call for Muslims to be denied entry to the country and for a physical border wall to be built between Mexico and the United States. But its title reminds the reader that American immigration has a much longer history. Marked by a tension between surplus and scarcity, the poem juxtaposes concrete statements about current economic conditions with more abstract invocations of feeling and shared humanity.

The exhibition shows postcard-sized work (4 x 6 inches) in any medium relating to any of the themes articulated in Ríos’s poem.

As an artist with a western immigration background Lique decided to make a digital montage of a photo from her Indonesian Grandmom in combination with a photo from her photo diaries (Self-portrait 19 09 19). In 1946 she and her family moved to the Netherlands after surviving the Japanese POW camps.

Zero and Other Heroes

April 7 – June 23, 2023

The new Dreef exhibition Zero and Other Heroes highlights the important art collection of another province: that of the province of Gelderland. The exhibition can be seen from 7 April in Paviljoen Welgelegen, Haarlem.

The collection of the province of Gelderland includes works of art by important artists who were born or bred in this province. In addition to works by Henk Peeters and herman de vries, the selection consists of works by the following artists (in alphabetical order): Klaas Gubbels, Rosemin Hendriks, Seet van Hout, Kinke Kooi, Ine Lamers, Willem den Ouden, Barbara Polderman, Wouter van Riessen , Maria Roosen, Keiko Sato, Lique Schoot, Berend Strik, Levi van Veluw, Carel Visser, Rob Voerman and Ivonne Zijp: The Other Heroes from the title. All 18 artists make or have made an important contribution to contemporary art, both in the Netherlands and abroad.

The Visiting Province series started in 2017 and featured work by Limburg artists, in 2018 by Groningen artists and in 2021 by artists from South Holland. Due to the corona pandemic, the exhibitions in this series could not take place for a long time. The fourth edition of the Visiting Province series deviates slightly from the original set-up. Whereas previous exhibitions in the series always highlighted works by a selection of visual artists from another province, this time the focus is on an art collection from another province, that of the province of Gelderland. ‘Zero’ in the title Zero and Other Heroes refers to the artists Henk Peeters and herman de vries who, together with Jan Schoonhoven, Jan Henderikse and Armando, were involved in the Nul movement in 1960.

Grand opening
During the festive opening on April 7, Gabrielle de Nijs Bik, project leader Collection Province of Gelderland and Simone Memel, curator at the province of North Holland, will discuss the similarities and differences of the art collections of both provinces in a short conversation with curator Aart van der Kuijl . Doors open at 5 p.m. (doors open at 4:45 p.m.)

Dreefexhibitions – The ‘Dreefexhibitions’ series focuses on works of art by North Holland artists and the art collection of the province of North Holland. In addition, there is an annual exhibition as part of the series ‘Province on visit’. There is a continuous exhibition in the Provinciehuis about the history of the building and its residents and users.
