Nature as Artifice at Aperture Gallery
Kicking off the Fall season, Aperture Gallery presents Nature as Artifice: New Dutch Landscape in Photography and Video Art opening Thursday, September 10 coinciding with the 400th anniversary of Henry Hudson’s arrival in New York. Curated by Maartje van den Heuvel, Nature as Artifice presents a major survey of new work by contemporary Dutch artists who, over the past twenty years, have taken contemporary Holland as their inspiration. The exhibition features the work of Hans Aarsman, Wout Berger, Henze Boekhout, Driessens & Verstappen, Marnix Goossens, Arnoud Holleman, Gert Jan Kocken, Jannes Linders, Cary Markerink & Theo Baart, Hans van der Meer, Gábor Ösz, Bas Princen, Xavier Ribas, Gerco de Ruijter, Frank van der Salm, Hans Werlemann, and Edwin Zwakman.
On Saturday, September 12, 2009, Aperture will host a symposium with select artists from the exhibition and other experts on Dutch photography at the School of Visual Arts’s new Visual Arts Gallery. Additionally, on Tuesday, September 15, Aperture Gallery will hold an Artist’s Talk with Hans Aarsman, who explores the myriad of questions involved in taking photographs for purposes as varied as advertising, documentation, and personal mementos.
