PHOTOGRAPHY, all art. SMALL is the new big?

Small is the new big at Gemeentemuseum Den Haag.
As I mentioned in my previous post, when I talked to FOTO MUSEUM DEN HAAG curator Wim van Sinderen in Paris, we agreed that photography in particular does not have to be big to work. Small is the new big we concurred. To make the point, Wim told me about an exhibition he has curated in the Gemeentemuseum Den Haag. Effectively 204 galleries with thousands of authentic works housed in a multitude of small white exhibition spaces.
The boxes include works from 800 different artists both established and emerging, names like Daido Moriyama, David Lachapelle, Anton Corbijn and Erwin Olaf have contributed works. Plus Lichtenstein, Picasso, Beuys, Christo, Ed Ruscha, Damien Hirst. Wim describes the venture as a dream come true, not only that, but such a simple and brilliant idea!
