ReView: extended through 18 February

Gift on 25th anniversary: Anish Kapoor, Sky Mirror (for Hendrik), 2017

What a great year we've had: in 2017 nearly 115,000 visitors were drawn to our activities and presentations. ReView alone accounts for more than 60,000 of these. If you haven't been to see it yet, come take a look: our anniversary exhibition will still be on view through 18 February. Don't miss it!

For the new year, too, we've planned some remarkable exhibitions again. Opening on 10 March is a major retrospective of work by Rineke Dijkstra, who received the prestigious Hasselblad Award last year. The exhibition comprises more than eighty photographs, including the classic series of beach portraits and young mothers, but also many recent works and a group of four video presentations.

The paintings and drawings of the Irish/American artist Sean Scully, internationally highly praised but still relatively unknown in the Netherlands, will be shown from 21 April through 26 August. And in the fall, visitors can become acquainted with the impressive oeuvre of the French 'art couple' Anne & Patrick Poirier. We'll end the year with an exhibition of work by Ann-Veronica Janssens, opening on 10 November.

Our best wishes for the new year! We hope to keep on seeing you often at De Pont.
