Two landmark exhibitions in 1969, 'Op Losse Schroeven' and 'When Attitudes Become Form', publicly introduced the 'new art' of the 1960s. This book, the first in the Exhibition Histories series, reveals how each brought together Arte Povera, Conceptual and Land art whilst introducing new curatorial approaches.
This event celebrates the launch of the Exhibition Histories series at the Temporary Stedelijk in Amsterdam.
Introduced by Sophie Berrebi (University of Amsterdam, Amsterdam) the event will lead into a public interview between Teresa Gleadowe (Afterall Books, London) and Seth Siegelaub (curator, Amsterdam), which will explore key issues in 1960s and 1970s exhibition practice. The afternoon will conclude with a round-table discussion with Charles Esche (Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven), Deborah Cherry (University of Amsterdam, Amsterdam), Teresa Gleadowe, Ann Goldstein (Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam), Christian Rattemeyer (Museum of Modern Art, New York) and Seth Siegelaub, moderated by Sophie Berrebi.
The launch will be held in the Auditorium, Stedelijk Museum, Paulus Potterstraat 13, 1071 CX Amsterdam. Entrance price: € 5.00 + valid ticket to museum.
