Gemeentemuseum Den Haag presents 'Topicalities', a solo exhibition of Ad Gerritsen.
On view from 1 December 2018 until 17 March 2019.
The beautiful but discomfiting paintings of Dutch artist Ad Gerritsen (1940-2015, Arnhem) confront us with the way we look at and assess our fellow humans. Often they evoke a sense of menace, the underlying narrative too gruesome for words, while the work itself actually makes you feel good.
The Gemeentemuseum is now bringing together a large number of paintings from Gerritsen’s idiosyncratic body of work, highlighting their topicality in today’s world.
