Artists presented

Upstream Gallery proudly presents Views, an exhibition by the renowned Dutch artist Marinus Boezem. The exhibition marks his third solo presentation at the gallery. Marinus Boezem is, together with Jan Dibbets and Ger van Elk, one of the most important representatives of the Conceptual Art and Arte Povera movement in the Netherlands. In the 1960s, Boezem discovered the use of elusive elements such as air, weather and wind for his art and made a name with radical, immaterial works that were far ahead of their time. In an oeuvre spanning more than sixty years, Boezem has created a body of work that stands quite independently in contemporary art, never having confined himself to a single style, handwriting or material. As to mentality, however, his work is unmistakably rooted in the sixties: rebellious in the face of authoritarian values, anarchistic in idiom and idiosyncratic in style.
