  • New Exhibition at Wereldmuseum, Powermask, curated by Walter van Beirendonck

    2017.09.01-2018.01.07

    New Exhibition at Wereldmuseum, Powermask, curated by Walter van Beirendonck

    1 September 2017 to 7 January 2018

    On 1 September 2017 the exhibition POWERMASK, curated by Walter van Beirendonck, opens at the Wereldmuseum in Rotterdam. The Wereldmuseum is giving the Antwerp fashion designer a free hand this autumn to present his own unique, multi-faceted vision of the phenomenon of masks.

    Powermask. Fascination with masks

    Walter Van Beirendonck has been fascinated with the phenomenon of masks since the 1990s, and incorporates them into his fashion collections. A mask transforms your persona, conjures up a certain atmosphere, and has an immediate impact. In the past, masks have inspired artists such as André Breton and Pablo Picasso, and even Pieter Bruegel the Elder. POWERMASK delves more deeply into masks and their various facets: the links between Western art and African masks, the supernatural and rituals surrounding masks, masks in fashion, masks as fetishes, and numerous other aspects. Visitors to the Wereldmuseum will be transported by Van Beirendonck to diverse worlds in which masks play a role.

    Cheerful and idiosyncratic

    Van Beirendonck selected over 125 masks from the Wereldmuseum’s large collection, to which he added masked costumes and fashion silhouettes. The main components of the diverse galleries are exhibits of photography and fine art. The design is colourful, cheerful and idiosyncratic – like Van Beirendonck’s fashions. The walls are taken up by installations by the contemporary artists Brian Kenny (b. 1982), Coco Fronsac (b. 1962), and Charles Fréger (b. 1975), which are combined with a variety of masks from Africa, Oceania, Europe, and America. In addition, historical and present-day film material gives a lively picture of the ways in which masks were originally worn by men and women and of their role in rituals.
     

    Publication

    The exhibition is accompanied by the richly-illustrated book POWERMASK: The Power of Masks’, Dutch edition ISBN 9789401443180 and English edition ISBN 9798401442954; Lannoo Publishers (on sale for €39.99 at the museum shop) .
    This exhibition is sponsored by the Erasmus Stichting, Stichting tot Bevordering van Volkskracht, Vrienden van het Wereldmuseum, Gemeente Rotterdam.

    ‘Nacht van de Kaap’ presents music, burlesque shows, good food and nice drinks.

    September – Saturday 2th

    The event ‘Nacht van de Kaap’ brings back memories of the days that ‘De Kaap’ (The Cape) was a place where sailors came ashore to drink in one of many bars and meet up with the ladies of pleasure. Nowadays the Kaap is a clean, safe peninsula situated between the south and north. But in remembrance of those vibrant days once a year, at the end of the summer, De Kaap presents music, burlesque shows, good food and nice drinks. Many of the visitors are dressed up as sailors and prostitutes. A great event where different styles and shows meet on just a few kilometers of land. I myself took out my Very Cherry stockings, high red heels and polkadot skirt for the occasion.

    De ‘Nacht van de Kaap’ is heading to Katendrecht on September 3th. During the Wereldhavendagen (World Port Days) the festival provides music, theatre and lots of maritime fun all night long. The festival has won the title: “Best Festival in the Netherlands” (Nationale Evenementenprijs 2015) and is mentioned in the Lonely Planet as tip during the harbour festivities: ‘Festivals-goers done retro get-ups such as sailor outfits for the spin-off de Nacht van de Kaap (night of the Cape), held on one crazy Wereldhavendagen night in Katendrecht, Rotterdam’s former red-light quarter’. To understand what we are talking about, you must experience this festival yourself. It’s the most lively festival of the year

    This autumn, the Kunsthal Rotterdam will present ‘Cabin Crew. Fashion in the Air’.

    SEPT. 23, 2017 – FEB. 4, 2018

    This autumn, the Kunsthal Rotterdam will present ‘Cabin Crew. Fashion in the Air’. The exhibition is a fascinating fashion retrospective of stewardess outfits from airline companies around the world.

    Cabin Crew. Fashion in the Air. Subject to fashion and zeitgeist, the outfits were influenced by a variety of styles throughout the decades, from functional and modest to stylish and elegant. The tailoring and colour of the uniforms, the hats, the shape and design of the scarfs, the blouses and the emblems; not a single detail was ever overlooked. Some airline companies even call in the assistance of famous fashion designers to create outfits for their cabin crew.

    cabin-crew

    The current KLM uniforms, for instance, were designed by the well-known Dutch couturier Mart Visser, and internationally many other renowned designers, including Yves Saint Laurent and Cristóbal Balenciaga, also created looks for airline staff. The extraordinary selection of uniforms in the exhibition is part of the Dutch purser Cliff Muskiet’s collection. From 1993 onwards he managed to acquire over 1405 uniforms from 523 different airline companies. The exhibition ‘Cabin Crew’ is part of the Kunsthal’s mission to disclose hidden private collections. READ MORE

    Trompenburg Gardens & Arboretum

    Trompenburg is a beautifully landscaped garden with a large collection of trees, shrubs, perennials, bulbs and tubers. The garden is located on the edge of the Centre of Rotterdam, in the Kralingen district and is a veritable treasure trove for botanists and a treat for hikers seeking rest in a busy city.

    In Trompenburg Gardens & Arboretum is a very special collection of trees, perennials, bulbs and tubers. The collection Quercus (oak), Fagus (beech), Ilex (Holly) and Hosta belong to the collections of the NPC (Dutch plant collections).

    Historical information

    Trompenburg Gardens & Arboretum is on historic ground. Nowadays this garden is a green oasis in the busy and vibrant city of Rotterdam. In the late Middle Ages was only swamp, belonging to Cralingen fiefdom.

    The name Rotta goes back on a settlement in the 11th century. In response to frequent floods were build dikes. To the first belong the old dike and the Honingerdijk, the latter is named after Lock Honingen, that here has ever stood.

    The dikes made it possible to the swamp as pasture. For this purpose, dug ditches, so that water could be af-and landed. The structure of long narrow lots with locks is typical of many a polder landscape in many areas in Holland and is also on trompenburg still visible, particularly in the oldest part that connects with the entrance pavilion.

    Trompenburg, more than an arboretum

    Trompenburg is more than an arboretum. It consists of a series of gardens with trees as part a special collection: an arboretum. In the Jubilee year is chosen for a new name: trompenburg Gardens & Arboretum. What in all these years has remained the same is the passion for plants. They continue to play a central role in trompenburg. Here visitors can enjoy the silence, the hustle and bustle of the lively town seems even on busy days far away. The gardens of trompenburg forms an oasis of peace in world port city of Rotterdam.
