At Home in Holland: Vermeer and his Contemporaries from the British Royal Collection

At Home in Holland: Vermeer and his Contemporaries from the British Royal Collection
Mauritshuis, The Hague
2016
The Royal Collection, held in trust by H. M. Queen Elizabeth II, contains highlights from the oeuvres of Dutch painters.

The exhibition design could have a grandeur and a certain elegance without being a copy of the Buckingham Palace. We choose for a minimalistic design: stylized arches, and intimate niches. The visitors can look at the paintings individually but also compare them with each other.

Queens of the Nile

Queens of the Nile | National Museum of Antiquities, Leiden | 2016
A special show of 350 top pieces, among which royal portraits, god statues, refined jewellery, talisman, costly utensils, sarcophagus and burial gifts from the Museo Egizio in Turin.
The routing is mandatory; the design enhances the storyline. The cabinets and the immense graphic backdrops evoke the Egyptian atmosphere in which the objects are integrated, but these can also speak for themselves.

Oswaldo Vigas

Oswaldo Vigas | Athological 1943 – 2013 | MAC Sao Paulo | 2016
The multi-facetted World of Oswaldo Vigas is clustered in five themes. Works from different life and art periods lead a dialogue due to such a setup. The exhibition is structured within a long rectangle, following the themes in five extra square cabinets and a ‘Cinema’.

The routing is free, for the entrance is the exit, too. Diagonal walls divide the cabinet spaces into two triangles.
