Featuring work by artists including Jan Altink, Ekke Kleima and Jannes de Vries, this show complements the survey exhibition and looks at how De Ploeg’s members took part in modern art movements following the group’s peak. After the painter Jan Wiegers befriended the German artist Ernst Ludwig Kirchner in 1920, the group entered a period of rapid artistic development. Kirchner heavily influenced the emergence of the colourful Groningen expressionist style. Though De Ploeg’s avant-garde intensity ebbed after 1928, they had indeed ploughed fertile new ground.
On show in the Ploeg Pavilion, complementary to the exhibition Avant-garde in Groningen.
