Longing for Boijmans

01 June – 07 July

Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, Rotterdam, NL

Longing for Boijmans is a special project in Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, which is celebrating its 175th anniversary. 'The Overpainting Painting' (Overschilderschilderij) was exhibited at the museum in 2014, when it already had 100 layers of overpainting. During Longing for Boijmans, visitors will first see Eva Krause’s layer, then Adam Norton will add to The Overpainting.

The 'Overschilderschilderij' project was started by Daan den Houter in 2002. Den Houter invites artists to produce their own paintings on the same single canvas. In the past, each work was displayed for one week at De Aanschouw in Rotterdam. The canvas then moved on to a new artist. Painting 160 is by Adam Norton.
