Global Imagination in Leiden


Vision Forum member Marjolijn Dijkman participates in the exhibition Global Imagination in Leiden that opens Friday June 26. “Twenty leading contemporary artists from all over the world have been invited to share their vision on today’s globalized world. To do so, they will exhibit new or existing work that has been inspired by the extensive collections of Leiden’s many museums. The result is a fascinating reflection of actual themes and developments in the world that surrounds us. The exhibition – which includes room-filling installations, video projections, sculptures and more – is hosted in De Meelfabriek in Leiden, an abandoned and imposing industrial complex on the edge of the city.”

Participating artists: Georges Adéagbo, Mark Dion, Marjolijn Dijkman, Romuald Hazoumè, Meshac Gaba, Simryn Gill, Mona Hatoum, Tsang Kin-Wah, Rivane Neuenschwander, Lucy Orta & Jorge Orta, Raqs Media Collective, Batoul S’Himi, Andrea Stultiens, Pascale Marthine Tayou, Tintin Wulia, Ghana Think Tank, Taryn Simon, Chen Zhen.

Curated by: Anke Bangma, Meta Knol, Nicole Roepers, Kitty Zijlmans and Manon Braat.

The Exhibition is open 27 June – 4 October 2015
