Participating in Museum Neighbours corresponds to the goal of the Van Abbemuseum to be an open and hospitable place for knowledge exchange. As we would also like to know our neighbours, we would like to welcome them for the Burenavond 2014!
After an introduction about the Van Abbemuseum and a welcome by the Vereniging Vrienden Van Abbemuseum, we invite you to take part in serveral activities. For instance, there are guided tours trough Once Upon a time… The Collection Now and an intriguing tour ‘Behind the scenes’. During the workshop ‘Make an exhibition’ in our DIY archive you can be a curator for a day using artworks from our depot. An original Warhol is literally within arms reach.
After these activities there is (some) time to visit the museum. We finish the evening with a drink and a talk in our museumcafé and additionally a small gift to our neighbours.
