The Materiality of the Invisible
August 30–November 26, 2017

The Materiality of the Invisible exhibition combines the methods of archeology and the works of contemporary art. Like archaeologists, the participating artists are occupied with exposing concealed knowledge, with penetrating to times other than the present and probing the underlying layers of our social, cultural and political reality, thus making the invisible visible.

The exhibition includes the work of thirty artists and artist duos, both young and well-established, shown in three venues: Van Eyck, a multidisciplinary institute for talent development, Marres, House for Contemporary Culture, and Bureau Europa, platform for architecture and design.

The core of the exhibition consists of work by six artists who, on the initiative of the Van Eyck, have been selected for collaboration with archaeological partners in the long-term European project NEARCH - New scenarios for a community-involved archaeology during the last few years. The Van Eyck is a partner in this project together with all of Europe's leading archaeology faculties and institutes.

Participating artists: Lida Abdul, Semâ Bekirovic, Rossella Biscotti, Marinus Boezem, Lonnie van Brummelen & Siebren de Haan, Joey Bryniarska & Martin Westwood, Leyla Cárdenas, Ruben Castro, Imran Channa, Iratxe Jaio & Klaas van Gorkum, Mikhail Karikis & Uriel Orlow, Daniel Knorr, Jeroen Kooijmans, Irene Kopelman, Giuseppe Licari, Chaim van Luit, Mark Manders, Alice Miceli, RAAAF, Raewyn Martyn, Stéphanie Saadé, Fernando Sánchez Castillo, Oscar Santillan, Daniel Silver, Studio Ossidiana, Marjan Teeuwen, Leonid Tsvetkov, Maarten Vanden Eynde, Roy Villevoye & Jan Dietvorst, Matthew C. Wilson
