Capita Selecta Groninger Museum

20 April 2013 to 22 September 2013

A selection from the Groninger Museum's own collection, showing various genres side by side: contemporary photography and design, next to celebs from the international art scene. This way of presenting art is perfectly in tune with the acquiring history and the postmodern building of the Groninger Museum, which, after all, is a mixture of different styles and genres itself. There is work on display by Jake & Dinos Chapman, Marga Weimans, Andy Warhol and Marc Quinn. In addition the focus is on photography by Anton Corbijn, Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin and Blommers & Schumm.
