The blues and the blue

16/03/2019 - 20/04/2019 @ SBK Amsterdam KNSM

Exhibition on the theme of 'blues' with works that are part of the SBK collection. Works by various artists and various techniques will be shown. These works can be borrowed or for sale.

Heartbreaking vocals and unfulfilled desires, will these blues hallmarks show up in the visual arts in any way? To connect blues translated as blue in color with sound and rhythm, brushes, paint, chalk, ink and glaze are needed, just like the blues is played with vocals and all kinds of instruments. And of course there is the 'blues' itself that has struck the artist like lightning, with or without a clear blue sky. Much of the art in the SBK collection deserves the 'bluesie' attention of every viewer. Works in which the blue mainly speaks the language of the muse that the artist has captured, including works on paper and canvas, photography, ceramics and so much more.
