Van Abbe On Tour Estafette exhibition at seven Vitalis healthcare institutions

04/11/2018 - 12/05/2019
Opening: 04/11/2018 14:30
Artists: Max Beckmann, Theo van Doesburg, Marleen Hartjes, Wassily Kadinsky, On Kawara, Fernand Léger, El Lissitzky, Piet Mondriaan, Constant Permeke, Pablo Picasso, Andy Warhol, Jan Vercruysse

From November 4th 2018 to May 12th 2019, the Van Abbemuseum goes on tour to 7 different locations of Vitalis living facilities for seniors. A total of 15 masterpieces from the museum collection of which exact replicas have been made (including work by Picasso, Mondrian, Van Doesburg, Warhol, Kandinsky, and Lissitzky) make up a travelling exhibit and reach around 3.000 seniors, employees, and volunteers. At every location, the opening takes places at 14.30 hours on the first Sunday of the exhibit. A museum guide will then also provide a tour at this temporary museum location. Every third Sunday of each exhibit at 14.30 hours, the exhibit will be closed with a festive ending with, among other things, a performance by the Van Abbe museum choir. These openings and closings are open to the general public. During the exhibit, there are multiple activities on site exploring the art works. In preparation, employees of Vitalis will receive a crash course in art appreciation to learn how they can engage the seniors in an accessible conversation about art. Such talks will enhance the experience of the exhibit in a profound and memorable way.
