Museum Voorlinden presents the exhibition Listen to Your Eyes. For this collection presentation, art collector and museum founder Joop van Caldenborgh was given the nearly impossible task of selecting his favourites from among the modern and contemporary works he has spent the past six decades collecting. The result is a visual journey of discovery that offers you a glimpse inside the mind of the collector.
Listen to Your Eyes is about free association, telling stories and the cycle of life and death, but most of all, it is about the pleasure to be found in looking. This collection exhibition contains works that touch and fascinate the viewer by means of their aesthetic qualities, narrative or craftsmanship. This selection of over forty pieces is presented not in chronological order, but in a way that invites visitors to look, compare, explore and create a story of their own.
Listen to Your Eyes features works from Philip Akkerman, Christian Andersson, Massimo Bartolini, Tjebbe Beekman, Jean-Baptiste Bernadet, Céleste Boursier-Mougenot, Dirk Braeckman, Brassaï, Alberto Burri, Nicolas Chardon, Thomas Demand, Martine Feipel en Jean Bechameil, Ryan Gander, Theaster Gates, Joncquil, Alex Katz, Paul Kooiker, Guillermo Kuitca, Liza Lou, Ivens Machado, Peter De Meyer, François Morellet, Juan Muñoz, Maurizio Nannucci, Mimmo Paladino, Cornelia Parker, Robin de Puy, Bridget Riley, Jan Schoonhoven, Nils Völker, Henk Visch, Carel Visser, Carel Willink, Yin Xiuzhen and Rémy Zaugg.
