✏Jessica Stockholder Stuff Matters Book Summary : This summer, Centraal Museum is in the hands of Jessica Stockholder (1959). The museum is showing special loan pieces, new sculptures and an installation that Stockholder created specifically for this exhibition. Stockholder also to incorporated pieces from the huge museum collection. As Stockholder explains: "I have selected items from the collection that resonate with my own work. In a certain sense I treated the collection as one of my materials, and have investigated how the meaning of each work changes depending on the context." Stockholder selected over 60 items from more than 45 makers. By combining these works in unexpected ways, new and intriguing relationships emerge between artists, artisans and designers, regardless of historical era and discipline. Thus, 17th-century works amicably rub shoulders with contemporary still lifes. This collaboration with Jessica Stockholder is a unique opportunity for Centraal Museum to present its collection--the DNA of the museum--in a light-hearted and wide-ranging way. This DNA derives from makers from Utrecht, from the Netherlands, and from around the world. Stockholder deftly weaves these different strands together to form a harmonious whole. From Bart van der Leck to Helen Price and from Gustave Courbet to Gerrit Rietveld: in 'Stuff Matters' they are all equally at home.00Exhibition: Centraal Museum, Utrecht, The Netherlands (19.04.-01.09.2019).
