Made In My Homeland - fototentoonstelling
Made In My Homeland fototentoonstelling
The Facebook group called “Click Click Community (CCC)” is a guest in the Studio of the Van Abbemuseum. This group organises an exhibition of photographs made by its members, which features an eclectic mix of images by photographers whose initial links are made via FaceBook and a shared enthusiasm for making beautiful images that capture fragments of the landscape and society that make up this archipelago of diversity. The result is a montage that reflects the exotic beauty and diversity that are essential characteristics of a nation of a thousand islands and a nation of windmills. This exhibition is a uniquely 21st century phenomenon whilst simultaneously demonstrating a perhaps universal tradition of formalism in photography.
In 2014 CCC has bonded with Grote Paul Gallery. GP Gallery is a digital FaceBook gallery with an yearly award (Grote Paul, hommage to Paul Huf). GP Gallery is currently promoting Triptychs as a new form of photography. During this exhibition several examples of triptychs will be exposed. Will tryptics be the form of art trend for the coming decades? GP Gallery firmly believes it will be and it is currently confirmed by market research.
